The incident happened around 8am on Thursday at a hotel in Notari Alemany street, named locally as South Beach Hotel.

If confirmed, it would be the first fatality of the season attributed to ‘balconing’.

The act involves jumping into a swimming pool from a balcony or falling from height while climbing from one balcony to another.

Civil Guard sources say they believe he could have been under the effects of some type of substance due to his “strange” behaviour before the incident.

Relatives and friends are said to be being interviewed following the tragedy.

Reports in the Spanish press are suggesting the man might have been trying to balance on the rails of the hotel and slipped.

He fell more than 15 metres.

The emergency services rushed to the scene, including an ambulance, police and the Civil Guard.

Doctors from a nearby medical centre also attended but were unable to revive the victim.
