Paul Clough, 41, a British tourist on holiday with his family in Spain's Balearic Islands, reportedly fell through a space in his third-floor hotel balcony, and sustained multiple fractures throughout his body that led to his death in a local hospital on Sunday (October 7).
When taken to Mateu Orfila Hospital on Saturday, Mr. Clough's injuries were so severe that he passed away at 1800 hours on Sunday (October 7).
Clough checked into the four-star Marina Apartments Hotel with several family members the day before his fall.
COMMENT: As our readers know all too well, I have posted countless postings on British tourists, and other nationalities as well, who have fallen from their hotel balconies while "balconing," which amounts to enormous peer pressure, often while intoxicated, whereby they jump from balcony to balcony, often with irreversible results.
Mr. Clough's death brings to TWELVE the number of Britons who have fallen to their death from upper floors this year alone  in Spanish resorts. Sadly, police are still investigating Clough's fall, although police investigators have generally initially concluded that the fall was accidental.
In April, British tourist Adam Atkinson, 20, from Castleford, West Yorkshire, died in Magaluf, Majorca, after reportedly falling down stairs.
Later that month Benjamin Harper, 28, from Twickenham, south-west London, fell to his death at the four-star Sol Antillas hotel in the same resort.
A month later British tourist Charlotte Faris, 23, also plunged to her death during the early hours of the morning in Magaluf. The holidaymaker from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, had checked into the Teix Hotel just hours earlier.
The fact that Majorca has seen a 132% rise in hospital admissions for sick and injured Brits in the last two years alone should suggest to reasonable people that there is a serious problem underway with British young adults in Spanish beach resorts, as the fatalities continue to rise.
