“The incident happened within a building site where the Hotel Jamaica stood.
“His friends said they had received a call from the injured man’s mobile phone and that other person had asked for help but officers weren’t able to find out any more.
“Paramedics transferred the injured man in a stable condition to Son Espases Hospital.
“The supervisor of the work going on at the building site was at the scene but said he hadn’t seen anything.
“There is a lot of building material at the site including supports, iron bars and planks of wood and the British tourist could have impacted against a number of things.
“An inspection of the site was carried out but the supposed place of impact could not be determined. The involvement of other people in this incident has been initially ruled out.”
