The man had serious injuries such as fractured clavicle and some broken ribs, so he asked that the hotel should take care of the hospital expenses.
A young man of English nationality who vacationed in a hotel in Magaluf, on the Spanish island of Mallorca, demanded that the resort where he stayed pay the medical bill following a fraudulent accident in the pool.
The man was left with considerable injuries such as fractured clavicle and some broken ribs, so he asked the hotel to take care of the hospital expenses for more than 33,000 euros.
According to what was published by the newspaper Mallorca, the lie of the young man was revealed after the heads of the hotel contacted the insurance company to carry out the investigation of the accident that occurred last Monday.
In his statement, the youngster said that the injuries had been caused by a fall he suffered when he left the hotel pool, however, the insurance company only had to resort to social networks to discover that it was a fraud.
In a video of just under 20 seconds, the guest is shown standing at the edge of the balcony railing. As he prepares to take the leap, his friends watch him. One of them with a phone in hand to get a record of the daring moment. However, things did not go as expected, since the small tree did not dampen the fall, causing it to hit his back on the ground.
So far, the man has not been identified, and it is unknown if the resort managers called the police for a claim from those involved in the fraudulent accident.
The events occurred a week after another foreigner lost his life in the same holiday area after falling from a second floor. The deceased was identified as 20-year-old Freddie Prind, who was staying with a group of friends. The body of RFC rugby team player Minehead Barbarians was found early in the morning of June 7, lying on the ground, near the entrance to the underground parking lot.
