The plunge further smashed into the ocean as he exhaled his last gasp of air before plunging to his death. Searches in the water apparently led to the discovery of the man’s body.

She screamed, “Oh my God!” as the short, horrifying clip ended. During the search for the victim’s body, his wife and kid were reportedly given counseling by local officials. The incident was a clear-cut case of carelessness on the part of the deceased and his family.

Majorca, also known as Mallora is a famous island in Spain that is visited popularly by tourists. Visitors from all over the world specifically from Germany and UK visit the island for their vacation. It is located in the Mediterranean with its capital, Palma.

Central Catalan scribes then hypercorrected this to Mallorca, which became the usual spelling. Mallorca was once part of an undersea peninsula connected to Spain 150 million years ago. Scientists believe that colonization occurred between 1300 and 1000 BC. Mallorca rose to prominence in the 13th century when the Moors and Catalans fought for control of the territory, with the Catalans eventually winning. Mallorca’s location on the Silk Road made it a desirable destination.

This territory would be ideal for trading. Palma, Mallorca’s capital, was built on the ruins of a Talaiotic town. Several Vandal sackings occurred during the fall of the Western Roman Empire. Palma became the capital of the Balearic Islands in 1983. Palma contains a prominent tourist destination, the Cathedral-Basilica de Santa Mara de Mallorca, which overlooks the ocean. Mallorca has a Mediterranean climate with moderate winters and scorching, dry summers.
