Guardia Civil at the scene of the accident in Pollensa.

A 63-year-old German woman, Eva Dagmar Ruth Schulz, died early this morning when the railing of an upper terrace gave way and she fell nine metres. Her husband, Jorg, also fell. He has been taken to Son Espases and is said to be in a very serious condition with multiple trauma.

The Guardia Civil are investigating the death at what is described as a holiday villa. The accident occurred around half past midnight this morning (Sunday) at a property in the calle La Font. The couple had been attending a party at the property and had gone on to the second-floor terrace after dinner.
