The authorities are investigating, on Sunday afternoon, a fatal accident that reportedly claimed the life of an assistant starter on the Camarero Hippodrome track, in Canovanas.

Although he did not want to provide further details about the incident so as not to affect the ongoing investigation, Juan Carlos Santaella Marchandinterim director of the Gaming Commission, told The new day that the incident would have occurred in one of the cages where the horses come out to the track. Other employees were present at the time of the events.

“The matter is being investigated… I cannot give you details of what happened.”, he expressed to this medium. “It is something very sad, very regrettable,” he added, later ensuring that the victim – a man whose identity has not been revealed – was wearing his safety equipment when the accident occurred.

An assistant starter is the person who coordinates and accommodates the horses, among other tasks, before they begin their races on the track. Due to the incident, Sunday’s equestrian events were cancelled.

Agents from the Canovanas police district, as well as technical services and the prosecutor on duty are on the scene for the rigorous investigation.
