British teenager, named by EFE as Jacqos Evans, has miraculously survived a fall from the seventh floor of a hotel in Magaluf, in what is thought could have been a new case of ‘balconing’ this season.
It happened shortly before 8.30 am on Monday at the Torrenova Playa Hotel in Calvià.
The 19 year old was admitted to the Son Espases Hospital in the Mallorcan capital of Palma after the fall, with relatively minor injuries considering the distance he fell. He is understood to have injured an ankle and broken one of his arms.
A Civil Guard spokesman commented to EFE, ‘This young man has been reborn today’.
It’s the second incident of the season after another 19 year old from Britain jumped from a fourth floor balcony in a hotel in Palma de Mallorca last month, in an attempt to reach the pool.
