A 7-year-old Israeli in Barcelona, Spain, died after falling through an apartment building window, the Foreign Ministry confirms.

The spokesman has no further information to share at this time.

The boy was in Barcelona on vacation with his family when he likely climbed on furniture and reached the window, Spain’s La Vangaurdia newspaper reports.

Though the apartment was on the second floor, the window was the equivalent of four stories up as the property sat above a two-story lobby, according to the outlet.

A worker in the building says that he heard a “chilling scream,” Maariv reports.
