Irishman dies after falling from balcony in Magaluf

AN IRISHMAN has died after falling from a balcony in an apartment in Magaluf.

The man, believed to be in his 30's and from Mullingar in County Westmeath, passed away in the early hours of Thursday morning, according to The Irish Independent.

The outlet reports that emergency services rushed to the scene at Majorca's S'Olivera Avenue apartment block at approximately 5am but were unable to save his life.

Green Party Councillor Hazel Smyth paid tribute to the Irish native, Mr Anthony Ennis, and said his tragic passing was "a huge shock" and "desperately sad for everyone in Mullingar".

"He was a young man in the prime of his life and it's another added sorrow to the sadness of the pandemic."

It is understood that Mr Ennis had been living in Spain for a number of years and worked as a bartender in Stereo Bar, a popular bar and club in tourist area Magaluf.

Spanish police have confirmed they have launched an investigation into the tragic death of the Irishman but have so far been unable to offer any explanation in what led to him falling.

It is understood that Mr Ennis fell from his eight-floor balcony before landing on a roofed area on the fourth floor, according to The Irish Mirror.

An autopsy is expected to take place later today.

May he rest in peace.
