Isle sleep it off on top of tower
FIREFIGHTERS in Magaluf were called out for an unusual rescue – to retrieve a British tourist who passed out on top of a beach observation tower after a night out.
The unnamed holidaymaker had climbed up onto the tower, which is used by lifeguards during the day to keep a watch over bathers.
His sleeping body was spotted by council workers just after dawn on Monday morning as they cleaned the beach.
They failed to rouse him and called out the police and fire brigade, who scaled the tower to retrieve the pisshead.
According to reports in the Mallorcan resort the man “showed signs of inebriation and was unable to explain why or how he had got up there”.
His friend was found nearby passed out on the pavement.
