British teenager falls to his death in Magaluf
The victim has been named locally as 18-year-old Thomas Channon, from Wales.
A British teenager has died after falling from a balcony in Majorca, becoming the third Briton to die from a fall in the same resort this year.
The victim has been named locally as 18-year-old Thomas Channon, from Rhoose, Barry, in Wales.
Mr Channon is understood to have fallen from a 65ft raised walkway at the Eden Roc apartment complex in Magaluf in the early hours of Thursday morning after becoming separated from his group on a night out.
It is believed he and friends had taken the trip to celebrate finishing their A-levels.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: “We are assisting the family of a British man who has died in Mallorca, and are in contact with the Spanish authorities.”
Last month 20-year-old Thomas Hughes, from Wrexham in north Wales, also died after falling from a walkway.
He was staying at a nearby hotel and investigators say he may have mistaken Eden Roc for his own accommodation.
In April, 19-year-old Natalie Cormack, from West Kilbride, Ayrshire, was killed while trying to climb from one balcony to another.
She had been working in a bar in the resort, and Spanish police believe she may have been trying to get in to her flat after forgetting her keys.
