A German pilgrim of 76 died in Burgos. He fell from a bridge in Villafria.
Descanse en paz.
Here is the google translation for the non Spanish speakers!

A 76-year-old German man, possibly a pilgrim, was found dead this Friday shortly before noon, in strange circumstances, apparently after falling from a bridge that runs through the Camino de Santiago, in the neighborhood of Villafría in the capital of Burgos According to sources from the Government Subdelegation, the body has been found among metallic elements that are next to the railway maintenance station of Adif in Villafría, next to the tracks. Although the place is fenced, there is an area where it is suspected that it may have fallen. The National Police investigates the event and, while awaiting the result of the autopsy that is going to be performed, keeps all the hypotheses open, without ruling out an accidental death.
