British tourist risks death as he walks along ledge of Ibiza Rocks Hotel

British tourist risks death as he walks along ledge of Ibiza Rocks Hotel

A British tourist has shared the hair-raising moment she saw a fellow guest risking tragedy by climbing along a ledge

A British tourist has shared the hair-raising moment she saw a fellow guest risking tragedy by climbing along a ledge.

It's a horrifying moment, as a man finds enough space on a tiny ledge to walk across, where one slip or tiny loss of balance would have meant falling.

The man could be seen balancing on the balcony.

This is all very well if he had been just a couple of feet up, but this was several stories above the ground with a straight drop onto a hard surface below. Falling from that height would have meant tragedy.

The incident unfolded at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel and was captured by horrified onlookers, including dental nurse Charlie Brooke Walsh.

The video shows the foolhardy holidaymaker precariously making his way across a very thin ledge at the top of the hotel. A woman can be heard shouting at the man, saying: "Get down! For f**ck's sake!"

Charlie has since spoken about the incident, hoping to raise awareness about people who make unwise decisions while on holiday.

She told MailOnline: "I want to raise awareness about people who fall off balconies on holiday after taking substances or drinking.

"I witnessed someone on top of a ledge at a hotel, thinking he had no hope of getting across, but luckily he did!

"Something needs to be put in place as it happens to too many young people losing their lives over silly decisions with not enough safety measures in place."

Fortunately, on this occasion, the man on the hotel roof managed to get down safely.

Charlie added: "Security found him about 15 minutes after he was up there and he was removed, but the next day he turned up in ocean beach club like nothing happened."

Tragically, falls from hotel balconies are a cause of death in Ibiza. On 4 July a 35-year-old British man died after falling from a hotel balcony in the holiday hotspot.

Only a couple of weeks earlier amateur footballer John McKenna died after falling from a hotel balcony on 23 June. Paramedics pronounced the 22-year-old dead at the scene despite their attempts to save him.

Ibiza has a reputation for being a party capital - while most visits go smoothly unfortunately some people put themselves at unnecessary risk.

The combination of being under the influence and a party atmosphere can make people do things they might otherwise not risk.

So, and I can't believe this needs saying, if you're on holiday don't climb off your hotel balcony.
