Andrew Henderson, a 21 year old British youth, fell to his death from a hotel room that was five stories up, while attempting to leap from his balcony to another, according to reports.

Henderson was reported to have been drinking for 15 hours at least, before plunging to his death at the Torremolinos Beach Club Hotel in Malaga.

At the inquest friends of Henderson reported that they began drinking during lunch and then headed to a bar nearby to watch a football game. They returned to the hotel at about 6pm and went bar hopping until 1:30am.

His friends then went to bed, but he went back out partying. The last person to see him alive was a receptionist at the hotel around 5:30am.

The coroner, Peter Bradford, ruled the death an accident, as there was evidence that Henderson had jumped between several balconies before falling to his death.
