Two Britons are in hospital in Spain after falling six floors from the balcony of their holiday apartment.
The Britons were on holiday for a week. Lee Cook, 28, and Jemma France, 18, plunged from the sixth floor and were discovered lying outside, covered in blood, by the hotel's night porter. The pair, from Ashton under Lyne, near Manchester, were on holiday with friends at the Casablanca Apartments in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria. Ms France's parents have flown out to the Canary Island to visit their daughter in hospital, the hotel said.
Receptionist Isabel Bego said: "The night porter heard a noise in the early hours of the morning and checked all eight floors to see what had happened. She added: "A guest told him that they thought two people had fallen from a balcony so he went outside and found them there. They landed on plastic tables, which were covered in blood." Police remain at the hotel investigating the incident.
Effects of inflation I suspect. Instead of trying for The Mile High Club they had to settle for The Sixth Floor Club.
