A FATHER-OF-TWO has tragically died on his first holiday abroad in Spain just hours after making an excited phone call to his family.
British dad Dion was reportedly ecstatic to be going on his first holiday in Spain with his partner Leanne.
He had missed on the previous year’s excursion due to his passport not arriving in time.
Less than a day before the tragic incident, Dion had called his father to update him and told him “how wonderfully warm it was.”
Later that day, Dion fell from a balcony and passed away from his injuries.
He’s been remembered by friends as a “absolutely sound and amazing bloke”.
Dion’s cousin Naomi began a fundraiser online to help bring her cousin home and help his grieving partner Leanne.
She said: “The family have since discovered that, due to an oversight, there wasn’t any travel insurance in place. This means that bringing Dion home has been made extremely difficult.
“Dion had settled into a wonderful life with Leanne and her two girls, and loved spending as much time as he could with his two adorable children.
“They had some great times on their visits and are really going to miss their Dad.”
Last year, a young Brit holidaying in Ibiza died after plunging from a hotel balcony on the party island.
The unnamed woman, 24, was with her boyfriend when she fell 30ft.
“It all happened very quickly,” a source said. “Nothing had happened previously that might have alerted hotel staff to the fact there were any problems, noise in the room or things like that.
“The woman’s partner came rushing down to reception and that’s when police and paramedics were called.”
Last August, another British woman died after a mystery plunge from a four-star hotel in Mallorca.
She is believed to have plunged to her death from an eighth-floor room where she was alone at the time.
Last May, a 34-year-old British tourist plunged to his death from the seventh-floor of a Majorcan party resort of in Magaluf.
