  • ‘Balconing Balearic Federation’ ranks nations in cruel football-style league table

A vile anti-tourist group which mocks holidaymakers who have died plummeting from hotel balconies in Majorca has celebrated the deaths of British tourists – morbidly labelling them ‘masters and lords of this sport’.

The sick group, ‘Balconing Balearic Federation’, ranks nations in a cruel football-style league table by handing out points for deaths or critical injuries and calling victims ‘dead athletes’. 

It counts up the number of deaths around resorts on the islands due to ‘balconing’, a dangerous craze which involves climbing between one balcony to another, usually on the outside of a hotel, or jumping into pools below. 

Each country is awarded two points for every person killed and one point when they are left injured. The UK is top of the table – with 197 points given for 42 deaths and 113 injuries since 1999 on the Balearics.

Now there are fears that more tourists are putting themselves in danger as the summer season gets underway, with holidaymakers seen balconing in Magaluf as recently as this week.

Of the UK, the group posted: ‘It is clear that the UK are masters and lords of this sport. They jump more than twice as often as any other nationality.’

The horrific anti-tourist page claims it is making ‘social criticism’ about issues with tourism on the Balaeric Islands. It was set up in 2022 and has since attracted more than 46,000 followers on X. 

The morbid group lists its location on X, formally Twitter, as ‘on the ground’ and describes itself as being ‘Darwinistically touristophobic’.

The group mock the tragic deaths using football references and show no sympathy.

When a landmark of 100 deaths on the islands – including Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza – was reached, a post crowed: ‘Dear fans, we are celebrating.’

It described the deceased in Catalan as ‘dead athletes’ and added: ‘Congratulations to everyone who made it possible.’

A recent spate of German balcony deaths was described as a ‘hat trick of boxes’ and a ‘new technical-tactical exhibition’.

One of the victims was a 24-year-old who plummeted 40ft after trying to scale his hotel after being locked out of his room.

Another was just 21 and fell from from the railing of his second floor hotel balcony after falling asleep from an all-night bender.

Of the UK, the group posted: ‘It is clear that the UK are masters and lords of this sport.

‘They jump more than twice as often as any other nationality.’

Another post adds: ‘Not only that, but you need to add the rest of the countries to be able to match their numbers.

‘A sociological study is needed to clarify why the British are breaking statistics about falling from balconies.’

Brits to have died in Magaluf in previous years include Scottish teen Natalie Cormack, 19, who died after slipping while walking along a seventh-floor ledge.

In June 2018 Welshman Tom Hughes, 20, died when he fell near the entrance after mistaking the building for his hotel.

The deadly craze of ‘balconing’ that is seeing British youngsters risk their lives on holiday

In April, an intoxicated 22-year-old Brit was caught balconing between apartments and ended up falling from the first floor but sustained only minor injuries.

Last month, a 25-year-old Brit was left in a critical condition after hurtling from the third floor of an apartment block in Magaluf.

Majorca has cracked down on the dangerous craze of ‘balconing’ – handing out fines of up to £30,000 to those caught in the act. Hotels are also liable for huge fines.

But island officials have struggled to stop the deadly practice altogether.

MailOnline reporters in Magaluf watched a clubber dangerously clamber across a balcony after another night of hedonistic excess in the party resort.

The daredevil scaled the outside of the railings to pass between two apartments of his hotel, risking a 20ft plunge that would at best have left him him seriously injured.

At worst, he would join the grim toll of those who have plummeted to their deaths.

The drama was captured by our photographer after another night of excess on Magaluf’s packed 600m strip – a stretch of bars, clubs, tattoos shops and strip clubs where almost anything goes.

Joining throngs of Brits on their wild nights out, we have witnessed drug and drink-fuelled debauchery, fighting and revellers sprawled on the pavement comatose.

One partygoer was pictured on all fours vomiting on the floor by Magaluf’s beach as officers from the Guardia Civil lingered nearby stopping street-sellers and suspected pickpockets.

Another man collapsed on the pavement on Magaluf’s main drag, his post-club takeaway buried beneath him, as revellers walked by ignorant of his plight.

And partiers watched on in horror as a man was left writhing around in agony after being pepper-sprayed by a bouncer. The young male was handed a carton of milk, which he then promptly poured over his head as he screamed in pain.

Officials are attempting to curb rowdy behaviour with potential €1,500 (£1,350) fines for street drinking and removing clothing, while shops have been banned from selling alcohol at night.

But some topless punters converging on the drag brazenly ignored signs warning of on-the-spot €400 penalties.

We watched last night as a fight erupted between two worse-for-wear Brits who were then accosted by baton-wielding police officers.

The young pair begged to be let go – insisting to cops that they were in fact holidaying friends.

Two Scottish clubbers came face-to-face repeatedly yelling 's***ebag' at each other before swinging their arms and tearing each other's shirts off

Earlier in the night, two Scottish clubbers came face-to-face repeatedly yelling ‘s***ebag’ at each other before swinging their arms and tearing each other’s shirts off.

At a tattoo parlour cannabis lingered in the air as revellers lined up for ink etchings to mark their trips.

Labourer Blake Evans, 29, demanded the tattoo artist pen ‘Get back Shadrack’ on his arm – a phrase spouted by a viral TikTokker whose videos promoting drug use have been watched by millions.

He then added ‘.6’ – a reference to line of cocaine and a nod to the influencer’s catchphrase: ‘Skip the Weetabix. Straight on the .6.’

Blake, from Cannock, Staffs, said of his artwork: ‘I’m p****d and I’m just having a laugh’.

Asked if Blake will regret the inking, pal Ash, 31, said: ‘Will he f*** – he’s got ‘chat s***, get banged’ on the other arm.’

The drunken hordes emerged from bars and clubs at 6am and staggered back to their hotels. In their wake, bins overflowed with litter and broken glass, and seagulls feasted on junk food lining the road.

Joe Colbey, a PR manager at one of Magaluf’s clubs, defended the resort and said its seedy reputation was ‘undeserved’.

He insisted: ‘People underestimate how good Magaluf is. Why do you think people come back?

‘I’m living the dream here.

‘It’s a good place to live when you’re eating out every day and living like a king.’

Joe, 35, from Glasgow, said he believed the resort was safer than his native Scottish city.

He added: ‘The police are very, very handy. All the workers are look after each other.

‘People go out and have a laugh. It’s not about going out and getting p****d.’

Thomas Owen Hughes, 20, from Wrexham

Tom Hughes plunged 65ft to his death at the same Majorca apartment complex just five weeks later.

The Welshman had been out with a small group of people on June 2, 2018.

Investigators said they believed he fell to his death after mistaking the apartment block for his holiday hotel.

The 20-year-old was found lying dead in the courtyard below the building around 11am the next morning.

Thomas Channon, 18, from Barry

Weeks after Mr Hughes’s death the body of another young Briton, 18-year-old Thomas Channon, from Rhoose in the Vale of Glamorgan, was found in a similar area.

The teenager plunged to his death after climbing a low wall with a 50ft drop on the other side as he tried to get back to his nearby hotel. 

Mr Channon’s inquest heard the teenager fell from the wall on a walkway to the car park of the Eden Roc which had a 50ft ‘sheer drop’ which would not have been clear to him or any other first-time visitors.

Both men were staying at nearby hotels and had been enjoying a night out before their deaths.
