A 20-year-old Irish tourist is reported to be in a serious condition today, Saturday, July 2, after falling from the third floor of a hotel on the Balearic Island of Mallorca. The incident occurred at around 4:30am in the four-star TRH Jardin del Mar Beach Hotel in the resort of Santa Ponsa.
Emergency services responded to a call and the man was transferred to the Son Espases Hospital in Palma de Mallorca. According to independente.ie, medics managed to first stabilise the injured young man at the scene for around 25 minutes when they arrived, after locating him in a small space he had dropped into at the back of the hotel.
