Taipei, Oct. 22 (CNA) Preliminary findings from the autopsy of the Serbian mayor who died in Yilan on Saturday indicate the cause of death was a cerebral hemorrhage, according to the Yilan District Prosecutors Office Sunday.

Hsueh Chih-ho (薛植和), head prosecutor of the office, said initial findings indicate the deceased, Dragi Nestorovic, mayor of the city of Krusevac, suffered from heart arrhythmia which caused him to fall on the ground and fracture his skull, creating the cerebral hemorrhage which killed him.

However, the exact cause of death will not be detailed until the completion of a written report, Hsueh said.

An initial autopsy was conducted on Nestorovic's body Sunday at the Mortuary Services Office, Yilan County, by a medical examiner.

After losing consciousness and falling during lunch, Nestorovic was rushed to National Yang-Ming University Hospital but doctors were unable to revive him and he was pronounced dead at 1:25 p.m. Saturday.
