The man, who has not been identified, went to the roof of the building to hang out his clothes and then realised he had forget to bring his house keys with him.
According to Diario de Mallorca, he had asked neighbours in the flat above him to let him in the building as he passed their window but they refused because they didn’t recognise him from the building.

Police said that he had lowered a rope to reach his balcony and attempted to abseil down but it wasn’t strong enough to hold his weight and he fell to his death.
He fell into the building’s interior patio and was pronounced dead by paramedics called to the scene.
