A BRITISH doorman has been detained for the death of Northern Irish tourist Aaron Henderson.
The Magaluf club bouncer allegedly assaulted Henderson outside popular Punta Ballena bar, Mulligan’s.
He became the second tourist to die in the controversial party resort in just one week after Three Lions worker Natalie Cormack, 19, fell to her death from her balcony.
A third man, believed to be British, is also said to remain in a ‘serious condition’ in hospital after a drunken 4am fall from a BH Hotel balcony.
Henderson, 30, had been out partying with friends on the strip when witnesses claim he was set upon by three men.
“Aaron had been standing outside a bar in Magaluf when someone ran over, punched him and ran off,” his father revealed.
“Aaron had a massive bleed on the brain and there was nothing that could be done for him.”
The father of four received a severe punch to the head and was found collapsed on the Magaluf strip, passing away shortly after at Son Espases Hospital.
Cormack’s death is not believed to be suspicious.
Allegedly, she returned home drunk after a shift at work but discovered she had forgotten her keys and locked out of her seventh floor Eden Rock apartment.
She attempted to climb onto her balcony from a friends flat but slipped and fell.
The tragic incidents come despite Spanish authorities pledging to crackdown on excessive drunken behaviour in Magaluf.
The mayor of Calvia published a list of 64 things tourists could be fined for while in the resort, such as public nakedness or fighting.
However, if the regrettable start of the season is anything to go by they seem to have had little effect in curbing the outlandish behaviour the resort is infamous for? – what do you think? Send comments to [email protected]
