Tourist Seriously Injured After Sleepwalking off Hotel Balcony
Aled Thomas Davies, 28, fell 35 feet from a third floor window, and suffered serious head and facial injuries and a broken leg, according to the UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper.
The accident occurred at the Lago Garden Hotel Apartments in the seaside resort of Port d'Alcudia, on Spain's largest island.
The newspaper says Davies apparently got out of bed and climbed over the balcony of his room while still asleep. His girlfriend tells police he regularly sleepwalks.
"We are looking into the possibility that he fell accidentally from the balcony during a sleep walking episode," says a spokesman at the police station in Alcudia.
Davies was transferred from a local facility to a hospital in Palma, the island's capital. Doctors fear he may lose sight in one eye as a result of the accident, the newspaper reports.
