A 22-YEAR-OLD woman is in serious condition, having fallen from a third floor balcony in Port d’Alcúdia.
The incident occurred around 7am on Sunday (October 20) at an apartment complex in the area. It has been reported that the woman, of Spanish nationality, arrived home but realised that she had forgotten her keys and in order not to wake up her friends, decided to take an alternative route. Accessing a balcony on the third floor, the woman attempted to descend to her balcony below, resulting in the fall.
An ambulance arrived at the scene, where paramedics stabilised the patient before transferring her to Son Espases hospital, where she remains in serious condition. The Local Police and the Guardia Civil are investigating what happened and if the victim was under the influence of alcohol or narcotics at the time. This year, there have been a number of serious accidents and fatalities in Mallorca as a result of falls from balconies.
