REVEALED: Four British tourists are already involved in serious & # 39; balconing & # 39; incidents in Majorca hotels this summer – while Spanish residents are having fun with foreigners with a ranking (which places the British top)
- A British tourist died this summer and three others were wounded in frenzy
- Majorca residents started a ranking to record the number of deaths and injuries
- A 20-year-old British tourist died in Magaluf this month after falling from the balcony
Four British tourists are already involved in & # 39; balconing & # 39; incidents on the island of Mallorca, which was unveiled today, this summer.
One person died on the Balearic island and three other Britons were injured in the craze that sees young people jumping from hotel balconies often focused on swimming pools below.
Locals have set up a Facebook group with the name & # 39; Balconing Mallorca & # 39; to have fun with foreign tourists participating in the dangerous craze.
A British tourist broke his collarbone and various ribs and claimed he had an accident in the pool earlier this year. He was one of the four British tourists who were injured this summer in & # 39; balconing & # 39; incidents on the island of Mallorca
On the social media page there is a ranking of injuries per nationality, with the UK currently at the top.
The Mallorca-based group has promised to update the competition with every new case that appears in the media.
Six balcony incidents have occurred this summer so far with visitors from Britain, Germany, Australia, Belgium and Sweden.
The ranking has six columns: the number of cases, the number of injuries, injuries (one point per case), the number of deaths, death points (three points per case) and the total number.
Earlier this month, 20-year-old British tourist Freddie Pring died in Magaluf after falling off a second-floor balcony at the Sol Wave House Hotel, where he was staying with three friends.
Pring was the first death of the holiday season, according to local media.

However, three other people fell off the balcony in the same week.
On May 31, an 18-year-old Swedish man was seriously injured after falling 10 feet from a balcony in Magaluf.
On June 4 a 19-year-old British man fell from a height of 26 feet and broke his ankle.
On June 5, a 35-year-old German man was seriously injured after falling off a second-floor balcony.
Earlier this month, a British holiday maker was caught after trying to get his Magaluf hotel to pay the costs of his medical bill to jump stupidly off a balcony.
The tourist was filmed when he jumped into a tree and fell to the ground after not supporting his weight.
Majorcan daily Diario de Mallorca – who published the amazing video – said he broke his collarbone and several ribs and claimed that he had committed an accident in the pool with a fraudulent bid to have his hotel pay his £ 33,000 hospital bill.
