Brit teen plunged to death in Magaluf while ‘climbing balcony after losing keys’

A teenager plunged seven floors to her death in Magaluf after she lost her grip while trying to climb onto her balcony, according to reports.

Natalie Cormack, 19, had returned home from her job working in a bar in the Spanish resort but had reportedly lost her keys, so she went to a friend’s flat to try to climb over.

She had fallen onto a restaurant terrace and it was believed to be several hours before her body was discovered by firefighters just before 10am today.

The horror fall came just weeks after the teen posted a picture of her with friends at the bar she worked at and wrote: “Having the best time of my life out here in Maga with the best people.”

Scores of tributes have flooded in for the teen following the tragedy at the Eden Rock de Torrenova apartment block in the island of Majorca.

Rosie Yeats, from Irvine, north Ayrshire, said: “I can’t stop thinking about you.

“You were the best friend anybody could ask for. I love you crazy girl Natalie Cormack.

“May you rest in peace.”

Zoe Horner, from Kilmarnock, added: “Can’t believe my eyes. Rest in peace Natalie. Thoughts are with your family. Will be sorely missed.”

Another close friend said Natalie’s next-of-kin had been informed of her death.

He said: “She was well known in Magaluf. She was a lovely girl.”

A Civil Guard officer at the Spanish island’s regional headquarters in Palma said: "We are still investigating but it seems she did not have any keys when she arrived at her apartment and went to a friend’s flat.

“She was climbing to her own balcony when she fell from the seventh floor.

“We understand that she comes from Scotland and was working in a nearby bar, but we don’t have any more details yet.”

A police source also told The Daily Record : “The entrance to the apartment block is on a seventh-floor passageway running between two buildings.

“The spot she fell from is a sort of an overhang that runs along the side of the passageway.”

A local investigating judge has been placed in charge of a routine inquiry and will now await police and local emergency service reports.

The teen, who came from West Kilbride, north Ayrshire, was doing her second season in Magaluf.

A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: "We are supporting the family of a British national following her death in Spain, and our staff are in contact with the Spanish and UK police regarding the incident.”
