A man in Spain, lost his life after trying to gain access to his apartment with a rope.

The 52-year-old man plunged 30 feet to his death after scaling the outside of his apartment building in an attempt to access his apartment in Alicante.

The man forgot his keys in his apartment and wanted to get inside by lowering himself from the roof, using a rope and entering his home via a window.

He lost his balance as he tried to lower himself into his third floor apartment with the rope that was attached to the roof.

The man managed to lower himself a few feet before he lost his grip and fell to the ground. A neighbor recorded a video of the dangerous attempt.

The man wanted to avoid paying a locksmith.

In the video, the neighbor is heard saying: “He reached a window and now he has got to get to the floor below.”

The man then asked “Why doesn’t he call the firefighters, a locksmith or the owner of the apartment to open the door. He could fall to the ground at any time.”
