There have been confused reports in the Irish and British press over the past two days or so about a young Irish woman, named as Ramona Fagan from Cork, who fell to her death from a hotel balcony in Tenerife. Some reports say she was just a couple of days into her holiday, while other reports say that she had moved over earlier this month and was to stay for six weeks or so. None of the reports give any indication as to the resort where the incident happened, and there is nothing from the official sources here (police, emergency services, etc), nor anything in the papers that I can find.
It’s very odd, and I know people say that the tourism authorities bury bad news and they don’t want things like this getting out, but that doesn’t stop the police, bomberos and ambulance services releasing information – as they routinely do – and it’s this that gets into the press, without the tourist sector having any say in the matter. Indeed, exactly a fortnight ago, there was a story about a British woman who died after falling 12 storeys from a Playa Paraiso hotel which was widely reported (link).
Obviously if there’s any more on this incident I’ll update with further information.
