British teenager killed in nine-floor Spanish hotel fall
A British teenager has died in Spain after falling from a hotel fire escape on the ninth floor.
Thomas Ousby, 19, was staying at another hotel in Magaluf, Majorca, according to reports.
He had spoken about returning to the UK days before his death on Thursday.
The aspiring model and musician from London wrote on Twitter: "Magas all good, coming home sometime this week tho."
He told friends he was promoting bars and boat trips at the party resort, tweeting in June: "Crazy times haha! It's all good selling tickets for bar crawls n boat parties."
Lily Delphine, 18, a film student from London, tweeted: "I wish we were all together again", adding, "On the balcony with everyone, having a cheeky drink and listening to toms ipod."
Danielle McCabe tweeted: "Thomas William Ousby has the most amazing energy I've ever met in a person, I truly adore him and cannot understand why he's not here."
Milena wrote: "I will treasure every fond memory. Every morning you woke us up singing and dancing. Every 'hii guyss' through the window. Every big smile."
A spokesman for the four-star Atlantic Park hotel in Magaluf, where the incident reportedly happened, refused to comment.
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We were notified on August 3 of the death of a British national in Spain and are providing consular assistance to the family at this time."
