Briton Badly Hurt In Hotel Balcony Plunge
A UK holidaymaker is in a critical condition after falling from the balcony of her hotel room on the Spanish island of Majorca - where three Britons have died in similar incidents in recent weeks.
Chantelle Serginson reportedly plunged 80ft from the sixth floor of the Hotel Marina Barracuda in the resort of Magaluf.
The 24-year-old, from Middlesbrough, is said to have received multiple head and leg fractures and is believed to be fighting for her life after the incident.
She was staying at the hotel with her mother Kimberley and younger sister.
A Civil Guard source told the Sunday Mirror: "We believe she lost her balance and fell, landing on the first floor balcony.
"We don't believe she threw herself off intentionally. It was a tragic accident."
The Foreign Office said: "We are aware of the incident and are offering consular assistance to the family."
On her Facebook site Chantelle says: "I am a 24-year-old girl just lukn 4 fun really, I work hard and play even harder!!! I love to dance till the sun comes up!!!"
Earlier this month, a woman became the third British holidaymaker in three weeks to die after falling from hotels in Magaluf.
