This is the moment a tourist risks his life by scaling a Majorcan hotel before plunging into a pool from a second-floor balcony. The youth, dressed only in shorts, used a drainpipe running up the outside of the hotel to climb between floors before tip-toeing along a narrow ledge and throwing himself off known as balconing in Spanish.
The incident happened around 5.30pm on Sunday at the three-star Hotel Encant in S’Arenal, a party resort on the eastern end of Playa de Palma. The resort is most popular with Germans but attracts a small British crowd as well.
Onlookers could be heard cheering as he made a splash in the water despite warnings from a Spaniard not to jump.
A hotel manager confirmed that he had called the police who had removed the tourist, who the hotel has banned from returning. The manager refused to reveal the man’s nationality or whether he had been drunk.
