Brit tourist fighting for life after fall jumping between balconies in Ibiza

A British tourist is fighting for his life in Ibiza after a horror fall from a second-floor balcony.

According to local reports, the unnamed 21-year-old fell while trying to jump between two balconies.

The incident occurred on Thursday morning (July 21) at the adult-only Jet Apartments in Playa d’en Bossa, a popular party resort.

The alarm was raised at around 5.40am and he reached the private Nuestra Senora del Rosario clinic an hour later.

He is now in an intensive care unit with severe injuries including head wounds.

Police have launched an investigation into the incident and enquiries are ongoing.

There has not yet been any official comment from the Civil Guard which is the force probing the holiday apartment plunge.

In August 2017, Carl Shepherd, known as Daniel, died at the apartment complex after a three-floor fall at 5.30am.

The 28-year-old tourist had reportedly fallen asleep on a ledge between the terrace of his apartment and a neighbouring apartment.

Well-placed sources revealed at the time police had taken away several laughing gas capsules they found in the apartment he was sharing with friends and discovered several bottles of alcohol lying on the floor of the flat.

Friends insisted they did not play the key part in his death and described him as a "deeply-loved, warm and charismatic man".

The electrician, who was born in the US, had dual citizenship but grew up with his family in South London.

It also emerged he was a cousin of British producer and actress Aletha Shepherd, a former Miss World Guyana. In 2019 Carl’s mum said after his inquest she suspected foul play.

In April, another British holidaymaker was left in a serious condition after falling 12ft from a hotel balcony on the other side of the Balearic island.
