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.

Has anyone taken out a measuring tape and measured the railing height, chances are like most balconies over here it is well below the waist line. That's why every second week there is an injury or death resulting from balcony falls. Very avoidable
