Just days after a young Scottish man was seriously injured in a similar incident, a young Danish tourist fell off a hotel balcony and died.
A 20-year-old Dane died after falling from a hotel balcony in Magaluf, Mallorca on Sunday morning, the foreign ministry has confirmed. 
The UK press reported that the man was originally thought to be a British citizen until police discovered the man’s Danish passport. 
“I can confirm that a person has died in Mallorca, and I can confirm that their next of kin have been informed,” Folmer Jensen, a foreign ministry official, told Politiken. 
Magaluf has been making headlines recently for the wild behavior of holiday guests. 
On Thursday, a 19-year-old Scottish man was seriously injured after falling from a hotel balcony, while a video of a young British woman performing oral sex on numerous nightclub patrons earlier this month has widely made the rounds online.
