Brit falls to death and kills local on ground after falling from 7th floor of Marbella hotel


A BRITISH man has fallen to his death, killing a local on the ground below, after plunging from the seventh floor of a Marbella hotel overnight.

The Brit fell from a luxury Costa del Sol hotel in the early hours with the Spanish victim killed as he enjoyed a late night drink on the terrace below.

The two men died instantly.

Police are now trying to establish if the holidaymaker jumped or fell by accident from the seventh floor.

The tragedy occurred at 1.45am this morning at the five-star Melia Don Pepe Hotel in Marbella.

According to local reports, the Brit was a man in his 50s who had been on holiday with family.

A spokesman for the National Police in Malaga said: “I can confirm two men have died at a hotel in Marbella after one plunged from the seventh-floor and landed on top of another. 

“We are investigating.”

A well-placed sourced confirmed: “The man who jumped or fell is a British man aged around 50.

"The man who was enjoying a drink on the hotel terrace below him is a 43-year-old Spaniard.”

Staff at the hotel said they would not be making any comment.

From July 4, Brits were allowed to travel to Spain without facing a two week quarantine when they arrived back in the UK.

On arrival, UK tourists will be made to have a temperature check and must provide the Spanish Ministry of Health with any history of exposure to coronavirus in the 48 hours before they travel.
