A WELSH TOURIST has reportedly died after plunging from a Magaluf apartment block.

The 20-year-old is said to have arrived in Majorca on Saturday.

His body was found around 11am this morning.

The apartment block where he was found, Eden Roc, is the same one where Scot Natalie Cormack died in April after falling from a seventh-floor ledge.

Local reports said the dead man involved in the latest tragedy, who has not been named, was staying at a nearby hotel and not Eden Roc.

One source said: “A neighbour alerted police around 11am, saying they could see a person lying on the ground. He fell from a height of around 20 metres.”

Another said the circumstances were still being investigated and it was too early to reach
any conclusions as to why it had happened. It was not immediately clear this morning if the man died some time before his body was spotted.

An earlier version of this report indicated in error that the man who died was Irish. This was the information that was available at the time of publication

The article has now been updated to show the man’s correct nationality
