S’Arenal accident leaves man seriously injured


A MAN, 30, was left quadriplegic after jumping off some rocks in the dark.
The accident occurred in the early hours of Thursday morning in s’Arenal when the man intended to jump into the sea. However, he jumped straight on to some rocks where he remained immobile.
Witnesses got him out of the water and called the emergency services. Paramedics realised immediately that the man had sustained serious spinal injuries as he couldn’t feel his arms or legs.
Extreme care was taken to move him and he was taken to Son Espases Hospital.
The area where the accident occurred is a favourite spot with youths who choose the early hours of the morning to jump into the sea because there is no lifeguard.
The water is shallow and there are a lot of rocks which can be seen during the day but not in the dark.
