Spain holiday horror: Briton, 19, rushed to hospital after falling headfirst into pool


The 19-year-old was rushed to Son Espases hospital in Spain’s Palma, Mallorca, after the incident at a beach club in Magaluf. Police rushed to the scene in the early hours of Tuesday morning at 1.25am after the young man dived into the pool, which was barely half a metre deep, at Oceans Beach Club. 

His condition has been described as ”serious”.

Agents of the Civil Guard have launched an investigation.

This comes after a British man died when he fell from a seventh floor balcony in Magaluf.

Meanwhile, Spain has launched a crackdown on tourists.

Recently, Spain imposed a new rule banning all-inclusive alcohol in the most popular holiday spots, including Majorca and Ibiza.

The legislation bans happy hours, pub crawls and two-for-one drinks, as well as the sale of alcohol in shops between 9.30pm and 8am, and forbids the advertising of party boats in designated areas.

“We want to put a stop to bad behaviour.

“From April to May this year we will increase the police presence in these areas and the number of inspectors.

“We will have zero tolerance for tourism excesses.”

Holidaymakers recently visiting the Balearic Islands have slammed the law as they found that their all-inclusive plan was not what they expected.

All-inclusive hotels are strictly limiting drinks to six per day, three at lunch and three at dinner.
