A father died while clearing the table after breakfast.

Police in Italy, were called after a man was found dead outside his home.

Police said that 47-year-old Giorgio Marchesano, was eating breakfast alone when his wife was at work and his children were at school.

After finishing breakfast, he went out to the balcony to shake the crumbs off the tablecloth. While doing so, the tablecloth fell out of his hand.

As he reached to grab the falling tablecloth, Marchesano fell over, hit his head on the pavement and died.

Police believe that accident happened because the railing of the balcony is very low. The incident took place about 10:00 a.m. at his home in Cogne.
