WATCH: Brit claim that he ‘slipped’ by pool to recover 37,000 euro hospital bill in Mallorca FAILS after video shows him jumping into a tree

THIS is the moment a British man tried to jump from a stairwell into a tree at a hotel in Mallorca.

A video circulating on social media shows the man crashing through the tree’s crown and landing with a thump on the floor.

According to Diario de Mallorca, the man broke his collarbone and various ribs, leaving him with a whopping 37,000 hospital bill.

The British holidaymaker then attempted to frame the Magaluf hotel, whose name was not disclosed, by claiming he slipped at the poolside.

The hotel passed the claim over to an insurance agency, who promptly discovered the incriminating video on social media networks.

The man reportedly received a reply from the hotel saying they would not be footing his bill.
