Emergency services including an ambulance, police and the Civil Guard hastened to the scene before he was pronounced dead.

Doctors from a nearby medical center also attended the incident but were unable to revive the man.

An autopsy is set to be carried out in the next few hours to officially determine the 34-year-old’s cause of death.

Cops in the Majorca party hotspot are now investigating the incident.

They are reportedly interviewing the victim’s relatives and pals in a bid to piece together his movements before his fatal fall.

A Civil Guard said said: “The dead man is a 34-year-old British man.

“The incident is very recent and there’s not a lot we can say at the moment as the investigation is ongoing.”

A well-placed source close to the case added: “He plunged from the seventh floor of a hotel called South Beach in Magaluf.

“We think he may have been drunk at the time because of the way he was acting before the incident but it is really is too early to say for sure what has happened here.

“At the moment, it is being treated as an accident rather than a crime although the dead man is thought to have been with other people when this drama occurred.”

It is not yet clear if the victim was staying at the four-star hotel where the incident took place.

A receptionist at the South Beach Hotel where the incident occurred said: “It’s all very recent and we’re not making any comment at the moment.”

The accommodation, overlooking Magaluf beach, is a popular spot for holidaymakers.

It boasts four pools, a spa with a sauna and Turkish baths, as well as an elegant beach club.

The tragedy comes after local government chiefs in the Balearic Islands and British diplomats urged UK holidaymakers not to fall foul of tough rules designed to stamp out drunken tourism.
