Man dancing on well cover on 40th b'day falls in and dies

Molfetta man perishes in freak accident at Erice

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 4 - An Italian man who was dancing on the cover of an artesian well at his 40th birthday party fell in and died when a stone slat broke and sent him plunging 25 metres near Trapani in Sicily at the weekend.
    Antonio Andreani, from Molfetta, is thought to have died instantly.
    The incident took place at Erice.
    Andreani decided to have a blow-out party to celebrate his milestone birthday, especially as a cancer survivor, family members said.
    Egged on by revellers, he got up onto the well manhole, which resembled a small stage, and led the dancing before the fatal accident.
    Emergency services rushed to the scene but were unable to revive him.
    An autopsy was ordered. (ANSA).
