Police were called out to a shocking scene in the early hours of this morning when they discovered the bodies of two men on the floor of a terrace outside a luxury hotel in Marbella.

According to police sources, the events took place into the early hours of the morning at the luxury five-star Don Pepe Hotel, at around 1:45 a.m. The emergency 112 services received several calls from citizens at the hotel indicating that a man had fallen from the balcony onto a terrace, specifically injuring another man in the process. Upon arrival, it was immediately evident both men had lost their lives.

The National Police have opened an investigation into what happened, so far they have offered no explanation as to why or how the 50-year British man fell from the 7th-floor balcony to his death. They are treating the death of the 43-year-old Spanish customer, who was drinking on the terrace of the Melia Don Pepe Hotel, as coincidental.
