The civilian guard asked for the police helicopter to fly over his body, but this request was later canceled when emergency workers could reach him on foot via a safety line. Local police and firefighters with the Vertical Rescue Group also went to the scene.

According to the island's media, the man from the seventh floor ducked to a courtyard.

Following the incident in calle Vara del Rey, an emergency call was made to the emergency services at 2 am.

Two ambulances from 061, the vigilante and the local police, went to the stage and found the man lying on the floor.

Doctors said there was nothing they could do to save the man's life because of the serious injuries he had sustained in the fall.

At this stage, no details were given about the circumstances or whether the Brit was on vacation or lived in Ibiza.

The judicial police of the Civil Guard have taken on the investigation.
