THERE have been two alleged ‘balconing’ cases this week. The first was a 19-year-old British girl plunged 90ft from the seventh floor balcony of the Torrenova Playa Hotel in Magalluf (Calvia). Jacqos Evans was believed to have landed on a sun-lounger by the pool, which cushioned the fall.
Speculation is that she was attempting to jump from her balcony into the hotel’s pool at around 8.25am. She was taken to Son Espases Hospital were her broken ankle and arm were treated.
Doctors said she was lucky to have survived the fall and that her injuries not too serious considering the height she fell from. Her injuries included a broken ankle and arm.
This is the same hotel where a 17-year-old Grace Ford fell last summer; she died in hospital 12 days later.
The second was a 40-year-old Swedish man who fell from a second or third floor of the Commodore Beach Hotel in Magalluf (Calvia) onto the roof of the dinning hall at 4.29am.
He too was taken to Son Espases to be treated for his injuries.
