INVESTIGATORS have launched a probe after a 22-year-old British man plunged to his death in Mallorca.
The unnamed victim was reportedly drunk and plummeted from a fifth-floor balcony in capital Palma early on Sunday morning.
He had been partying with four friends who had no idea what had happened until officers knocked on the door of the flat on calle Gilabert de Centelles, according to a police statement.
A pedestrian found him unconscious on the pavement around the corner, but medics said he had suffered a heart attack and pronounced him dead at the scene after attempts to revive him failed.
His friends later identified the body before being quizzed by detectives.
He was lying close to the road and it initially appeared that he had been run over but current enquiries suggest that he died from the impact after falling accidentally.
It remains unconfirmed whether he was a holidaymaker or expatriate.
A post mortem examination scheduled for today is set to confirm the cause of death.
