[Mirror.co.uk] A British holidaymaker has plunged to his death after a balcony stunt at his Majorca hotel went tragically wrong.
Kevin Louis, 26, fell more than 30ft after losing his grip as he dangled from the fifth floor veranda and asked friends to count how long he could hold on.
He had just returned from a night out with four pals in the party resort of Magaluf when he clambered over the edge.
He was seen hanging from the balcony moments after he got back to the apartment block in Magaluf at 7.40am on Saturday.
An onlooker said: “It all happened so quickly. He clambered over his balcony and only held on for a few seconds before he dropped.
“He fell headfirst like a lead weight and smashed on to a concrete ramp leading down to an underground car park next to his hotel garden.
“His friends saw everything. They were in tears when ambulance workers told them their friend was gone.”
A police source added: “The friends told us he wanted to show off and hung off his balcony to see how long he could hold on for.
“He fell before they could talk him out of it.”
