Mauricio Wesllei Menon, 22, fell accidentally, according to a family spokesman.

Contacted by Notícias ao Minuto, Faro's District Relief Operations Command said that the alert was given at 8:07 am that morning, failing, however, to confirm the floor where the incident occurred.

Born in Jaraguá do Sul, in Santa Catarina, Mauricio moved to Portugal a year ago in search of a job.

According to g1, the young man worked as a painter and was living with a cousin and a friend in the apartment where the fatal fall occurred.

In view of the expenses of transferring the body to Brazil, which are around 30 thousand reais (about 5,502 euros), the family created a fundraiser.
