On Sunday morning, a 52-year-old Spanish man fell to his death from a balcony at the Marivent Hotel in Cala Major.

The incident occurred around 10am. The tourist fell onto a terrace by the pool and sunloungers. He suffered fatal internal injuries. The emergency services could do no more than confirm his death. After the body was removed a couple of hours later, a police cordon was lifted.

In seeking an explanation as to what caused the fall, the National Police have been interviewing hotel employees as well as those close to the deceased.
