Hotel plunge holidaymaker 'critical'
A British teenager who tumbled more than 33ft (10m) from a hotel window while on holiday in Majorca was in a critical condition today.
Grace Ford, 17, who recently completed her A-levels at the fee-paying Kirkham Grammar School in Lancashire, was injured at about 5am on Saturday.
Police said she fell on to a cement floor at the Torrenova Playa hotel in the Spanish island resort of Magaluf.
She was found covered in blood.
Her parents were at her bedside at the Son Dureta University Hospital in Palma, where she is receiving treatment.
The sixth form pupil broke her pelvis and leg in the fall and a hospital spokeswoman described her injuries as "very serious".
She said: "The girl is in a critical condition."
An 18-year-old British man was arrested following the incident on Saturday.
Edward Soppet, from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, will appear in court in Palma on Monday, when a judge will decide whether to remand him in custody, a police spokesman said.
He has been accused of failing to help in connection with the incident.
Grace was in an indoor patio or courtyard area in the beach-front apartment complex when she fell from the window, police said.
She was reportedly on the island with a group of sixth form friends from the grammar school.
