Woman Dies In Balcony Fall

A 23 year old woman from Hertfordshire's died after falling from a hotel balcony on the island of Majorca.

Charlotte Faris from Codicote near Stevenage (right) fell to her death in the early hours of Saturday 5 May 2012 at a hotel in the resort of Magaluf.  It's not clear why.

The holidaymaker had checked into the Teix Hotel just hours earlier, according to reports.  She is the third British holidaymaker to die on Majorca in the space of a month.

On Sunday, her family were too distressed to speak but issued a statement through Hertfordshire Police.

They said: "Charlotte was a very loving and much loved daughter, sister, grand-daughter and friend. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. We are still trying to come to terms with our devastating loss."

The Foreign Office said they were providing consular assistance to the family.

Benjamin Harper, 28, from Twickenham, south west London, fell to his death at the four-star Sol Antillas hotel in Magaluf on 20 April 2012.

It is believed the roofer had gone out on to the balcony for a cigarette before leaning over and falling to his death while on a stag do.

His death came three days after that of Adam Atkinson, 20, who suffered fatal injuries when he reportedly fell from a stairwell at the Hotel Martinique in the same resort.
