A BRITISH tourist is in critical condition after falling from a fourth-storey hotel balcony in Magaluf, Mallorca.
Harry Carter, 18, was rushed to Son Espases Hospital with a head injury and a broken arm.
Eyewitnesses report that Carter was attempting to climb from his fourth-storey balcony to a balcony on the third floor — drink in hand — when he fell.
Carter is the latest to be injured in a practice known as ‘balconing’, which involves the use of balconies as platforms for jumping into swimming pools or to neighboring balconies.
Just last month, a 21-year-old Scottish tourist was also seriously injured while ‘balconing’ at the same Magaluf hotel as Carter.
The dangerous craze, popularised on video-sharing sites like YouTube, has claimed the lives of dozens of participants — primarily young men, many of them tourists — over the past few years.
