British bar worker, 19, dies plunging seven floors from Magaluf hotel balcony ‘after forgetting her keys’

The tragedy is thought to have happened after the 19 year old, who has not been named, realised she did not have her keys after she returned from work at a nearby bar in the brash resort on the south coast of Majorca.

Well-placed sources said investigators believe she fell as she walked along a ledge of the 12-storey building after finding herself locked out as she went to visit a pal – in what is the second balcony fall this year.

The apartment block she was trying to get into has been named as Eden Roc in Torrenova Street in Magaluf, a short walk from notorious Punta Ballena Street where thousands of Brits flock every summer to party.
Her body was recovered from a restaurant terrace in Martin Ros Garcia Street on the corner of Torrenova Street.
The source said: “The entrance to the apartment block is on a seventh-floor passageway running between two buildings.
“The spot she fell from is a sort of an overhang that runs along the side."

The resort is a magnet for young party-goers from Britain and Ireland but has been blighted by balcony falls in recent years, usually peaking in June

A Civil Guard officer at the regional headquarters in Palma, said: "We are still investigating.

“But it seems she did not have any keys when she arrived at her apartment and went to a friend's flat.

“She was climbing to her own balcony when she fell from the seventh floor.

“We understand that she comes from Scotland and was working in a nearby bar but we don't have any more details yet."

Detectives are trying to reconstruct the hours leading up to the resort worker's death.

Other residents and guests are being interviewed to try to find out what happened and when.
