A report from the labor inspectorate had attributed the death of the young man to hyperthermia, a day when the temperature exceeded 35 ° C.

Another expert concluded that the aneurysm had ruptured.

The victim had felt ill, had taken a break and then resumed work before starting to vomit.

The help, called by the other workers, had not been able to save the young man.
