IBIZA – In a tragic incident, a second British tourist has lost his life this summer in Ibiza after falling from the second floor of a hotel in the municipality of Sant Antoni.
The victim, a 35-year-old man, was found at 3.20 am unconscious on the ground in front of the O Beach Ibiza hotel. The Guardia Civil is currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The SAMU 061, the emergency medical services, received a distress call around 3.20 am this morning regarding an unconscious man lying on the ground on Molí Street in Sant Antoni. Upon arrival, an Advanced Life Support ambulance confirmed the man’s death, as reported by Europa Press.
Fatal ‘balconing’ accidents
It is important to note that just two weeks ago, on June 23rd, the first fatal balcony accident of the season occurred in the Balearic Islands. In that unfortunate incident, a 22-year-old British tourist fell from the third floor of a hotel in the same tourist destination of Sant Antoni.
These incidents serve as a grim reminder of the dangers associated with balcony falls and the need for heightened awareness and caution, especially among tourists. The local authorities and tourism organisations continue to emphasise the importance of responsible behaviour and adherence to safety guidelines to prevent such tragic accidents.
The Guardia Civil is working diligently to determine the exact circumstances leading to the recent balcony fall, and further updates will be provided as the investigation progresses.
