Young Dane falls to his death in Mallorca

Incident is latest in string of wild incident in Magaluf

Several incidents have made for damaging headlines for the high-intensity holiday resort of Magaluf on the Spanish island of Mallorca – the latest involving the death of a young Danish tourist.

Just three days after a similar incident involving a 19-year-old Scottish man who was seriously injured in a balcony fall, a 20-year-old Danish tourist fell to his death from the balcony of a hotel on Sunday morning.

“I can confirm that a person has died in Mallorca, and I can confirm that their next of kin have been informed,” Folmer Jensen, a foreign ministry official, told the newspaper Politiken.

In another wild incident in Magaluf this month, the video of a young British woman performing oral sex on more than 20 men in a nightclub has been doing the rounds on social media. She had been told she would win a holiday if she took part in the “game”, but this turned out to be false. The mayor of Magaluf has expressed outrage at the incident.
