A 24-year-old Scarborough man who miraculously survived a seven-storey fall from a hotel balcony has been moved out of intensive care.

Sean Kelly, 24, from Eastfield, was placed in an induced coma after he fell more than 60ft from the Magaluf Playa apartments in Majorca.

The Plaxton worker fell around 3am last Thursday morning after what was the first night of a holiday with a group of Scarborough friends which formed part of stag party.

Local fire services had to be called to rescue him after he plummeted while trying to jump from a window onto a balcony on the seventh floor.

The roof of a shop below broke his fall, leaving Mr Kelly with a reported fractured skull and pelvis.

Mr Kelly’s family flew out to be with him on Friday while he underwent crucial scans to determine if he sustained any brain damage.

The results came back negative and a few days later the former St Augustine’s School pupil awoke from his coma.

He is reported to be talking well with family and friends, and yesterday spent his first day out of intensive care on a ward at Son Espases Hospital, Palma.

Doctors do not yet know when he will be able to return home.
