Isle sleep it off on top of tower

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
