The sad fallout from holiday balcony deaths

  • There have been 13 incidents of young people falling from balconies so far this year.
  • Three of these cases resulted in death while others have been seriously injured.
  • In Majorca and Ibiza, for instance, two of UKs top tourist destinations, there have been 9 cases - already matching figures for 2011, despite only being half way through the season.
  • Most incidents involve young people between the ages of 18 and 35 and whilst not always the case, alcohol often plays a part.
