British woman in critical condition after fall from sixth-floor hotel balcony in Benidorm

After falling from a sixth floor hotel balcony in Benidorm, a British woman is now in critical condition.

A judge released her husband, a 40-year-old British man, from custody after he was taken into Spanish police custody for attempted homicide.

Tourists were staying at the four-star Rio Park hotel, which is part of the Medplaya chain. Just after midnight, the alarm was raised.

The 36-year-old woman is still in Villajoyosa hospital. Her condition was “critical” at the time she was taken to treatment.


Sources close to investigation could not confirm on Sunday whether the incident at Hotel X was an accident, attempted suicide, or related to crime.

According to the same sources, the unnamed British citizen was released after appearing in court in Benidorm.

He was released without any protective measures, such as the obligation of signing on at the court or a ban from leaving the country. This suggests that he wasn’t being treated as suspect.

Official statements could not be provided by court workers.

After the incident, a spokesperson for Spain’s National Police stated that he had previously said: “Officers arrested a British man under suspicion of attempted murder after his wife, also British, fell from the sixth floor balcony of their hotel, Benidorm.”

“The arrest is preventative and it will be up the judge to decide what happens after the man appears before them in the next day.

“The couple shared the same room, and we were talking about a foreigner with no ties to Spain. We are obliged to make the arrest while we investigate what happened.”

Local reports claim that witnesses told police that the man was in the hotel room, and the woman was on the balcony at the time she stepped over the edge.

The incident occurred in Benidorm, just five minutes from the famous Levante Beach at Costa Blanca.

Kirsty Maxwell, a Scots holidaymaker, was killed in a Benidorm hotel plunge in April 2017.

After a lengthy investigation, five British men were found not to have been involved in the death of her mother. In July 2020, a regional court rejected her appeal. This was to convince judges that it wasn’t an accident and to overturn an earlier court order to abandon the investigation.
