A BRIT woman has died after plunging from the sixth floor of a hotel while on holiday in Majorca.
Police have deployed homicide cops to investigate the 35-year-old tourist's death after the horror incident early on Sunday.
Emergency services rushed to the scene after the alarm was raised at around 9.30am.
Paramedics raced to the Hotel Bellver in the Majorcan capital Palma – but sadly could do nothing to save the unnamed woman.
Well-placed sources confirmed she was staying at the hotel with a person believed to be her partner.
It was not immediately clear if that person, who will be interviewed by police as part of their inquiry, was in the room she plunged from at the time.
