Increase in Brits dying in balcony deaths

We've already seen some tragic cases this summer which have had devastating consequences for the individuals and families concerned.

This year there's been a particular spike early on in the holiday season with figures already matching last years.

Some people have fallen whilst climbing to a friends apartment, others have simply lost their footing after a few too many drinks and a few have deliberately jumped off aiming for the pool below.

It should go without saying these practices are extremely dangerous and can cost them their life or leave them permanently disabled.
