A TEENAGE boy on his first ever holiday with friends has become the third Brit to be killed this year after falling from the same apartment block in Magaluf.

Thomas Channon, 18, was killed on a “walkway of death” when he tumbled 70ft while travelling with friends to celebrate finishing his A-Levels.

Spanish police said he fell from a balcony — but friends say Thomas tumbled from a deadly walkway after he stumbled over a wall.

His body was found in the gardens of a the private apartment block Eden Roc by a gardener on Thursday morning.

Thomas of Rhoose, near Barry, South Wales, was on his first ever holiday with friends when the tragedy took place. His father, business consultant John, 67, and midwife mum Ceri, 49, are understood to have flown to Mallorca.

Parents of his heartbroken friends have now brought their own sons home from Spain — and demanded action over the low-walled walkway.

One mum, who asked not to be named, said: “We went to where Thomas fell and the wall is way too low. It’s about knee height.

“When you look at it there are loads of trees and bushes beyond the wall which gives the impression there’s a garden, but there’s actually a 70ft (21 metre) drop.

“Something has to happen now. It shouldn’t take all these kids dying to make sure proper precautions are in place.

“The caretaker who found him was crying to us saying ‘this cannot go on, something has to change’.

“But the hotel has done nothing to tape off the walkway or put warnings in place.

“Three kids dying here this year is just unbelievable. We’re furious. There are kids going out tonight and nothing is being done.”

She said Thomas has wandered away from his group of school friends at around 4am on Thursday morning and had entered the Eden Roc apartment building which was next door to the Hotel Florida where he was staying.

Police believe he may have got lost as he made his way home.

Thomas is the third British holiday-maker to have died in an apparent balcony fall in the Eden Roc this year.

In April bar worker Natalie Cormack, from West Kilbride in Scotland, fell from the Eden Roc apartment block after trying to edge her way along an overhang after she discovered she didn’t have keys to get in.
