The lifeless body of a man was discovered Wednesday afternoon at the foot of Tournai Cathedral. The victim would have fallen from the religious building. The rescue services of Picardy Wallonia were alerted on Wednesday afternoon, at 3:50 p.m., that the body of a person had been found at the Place du Vieux Marché aux Poteries, in the city center of Tournai.
A ladder, an ambulance and a command vehicle were dispatched to the scene. When help arrived, the victim, a man, had already died. The body was located at the foot of Notre-Dame de Tournai cathedral, opposite the “Pinacle” café-restaurant.
The neighborhood is currently cordoned off by the police. We do not yet know the causes of death which seems to be linked to a fall of the cathedral, a building still under construction.
