Man Dies 'Balconing' At Majorca Hotel
A man in his 20s has died in a fall from his hotel room balcony in the resort of Magaluf, Majorca.
The young man fell through the cracks of a balcony in the early hours of Monday while allegedly practising what is known as "balconing" - which involves jumping from balcony to balcony, or into a pool from a balcony.
It is understood to be the second death in 24 hours from the activity on Majorca.
Another young victim died on Sunday after falling from a height of eight metres onto the courtyard below.
Hotels and apartments in the area have increased security measures in recent months after learning of the practise, according to Spanish news organisation Telecinco.
It claims that at least seven people have died falling from balconies this year.
:: The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has confirmed a British national has died in Magaluf in the last 24 hours, but gave no other details.
