A BRITISH mother of three who died after falling more than 50 feet from a hotel balcony in Mallorca may have been sleepwalking, an inquest heard.

Ema Evans, from South Wales had been holidaying with her partner Martin and the eldest of their three children in September 2015.

An inquest heard of how she reportedly tried to sleep on the balcony of her hotel room after becoming too hot in bed and tragically fell to her death.

She died from multiple injuries after the fall.

The hearing, held at Swansea Civic Centre, heard that Ema, 37, had a “propensity to sleepwalk.”

Acting coroner for Swansea, Colin Phillips, said: “'Ema had been sleeping on the balcony because of the excessive heat and humidity in a room which was not air conditioned.

“She had a propensity to sleepwalk.”

Mr Phillips recorded a conclusion of accidental death.
