A 20-year-old tourist has died after plunging from an apartment block in Spain at the same apartment block where a British teen fell to her death earlier this year.

Paramedics were called but sadly the man – believed to be Irish – was pronounced dead at the scene in Magaluf this morning.

Local reports claimed he was not staying at the Eden Roc de Torrenova apartment block where he was found.

Eden Roc is the same block from which 19-year-old Natalie Cormack fell to her death in April.

The young woman, from West Kilbride in Ayrshire, had returned home from working in a bar but had lost her keys, so she went to a friend’s flat to try and climb over, reports said.

She died after falling from a seventh-floor balcony.

The young man who died is thought to have been staying at a nearby hotel.

A 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.”

It is understood the man only arrived in Magaluf, a resort town on the island of Majorca, yesterday.

His body was found at around 11am this morning.

Neighbours are thought to have told officers they heard a lot of noise at around 4am, but it is unclear at this stage if this was connected to the death.

The circumstances of today’s tragic incident are being investigated by police.

A duty court in Palma has been placed in charge of the investigation and is awaiting a full police report.

An autopsy is expected to be carried out tomorrow.

Natalie had been working at a bar in the holiday resort before she lost her footing and fell to her death on April 27 this year.

The horror fall came just weeks after the teen posted a picture of her with pals at the bar she worked at and wrote: “Having the best time of my life out here in Maga with the best people.”

She was found around 10am on the morning of April 27 but officials believe she fell several hours before that.

Her devastated friends and colleagues raised more than £8,000 on a crowdfunding page to help bring her body home to Scotland.
