A Scottish teenager fell to her death from a seventh floor apartment in Magaluf on Friday while trying to climb from one balcony to another.
Bar worker Natalie Cormack, 19, 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.
She went to a friend’s apartment and tried to climb to the balcony on her flat at the Eden Rock de Torrenova apartment block when she fell.
An ambulance crew tried to help but were unable to save her life.
Miss Cormack is believed to be from West Kilbride, North Ayrshire in Scotland and travelled to Magaluf with friends last month, after flying out from Glasgow Prestwick Airport.
Her stunned mother, Lynn McLaren, shared the tragic news on Facebook and posted the following message: ‘I am sorry to do things this way but have to let everyone know that Natálie has fallen from a balcony in Magaluf and has died. At the moment this is all we know.’
The post led to an outpouring of shock and grief on social media.
Gillian Chisholm wrote: ‘I can’t believe what I am reading. I don’t even want to imagine how you must be feeling Lynn because I am heartbroken for you.’
Justine Rant said: ‘I’m so so sorry Lynn. My heart is absolutely breaking for you. If there’s anything we can do please let me know.’

A Civil Guard officer at the regional headquarters in Palma, the holiday island’s capital, 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.’
