A British man has survived after plunging from a seventh-floor balcony at a Mallorca hotel and landing on a car following a row with his girlfriend.  

The incident happened early on Thursday morning at a hotel in the holiday resort of Porto Cristo. 

The man suffered multiple injuries and was rushed to the hospital of Son Espases de Palma. 

Emergency services say the car bonnet broke the man's fall and probably saved his life. 

Initial reports say the British man fell from a balcony at about 2am. No details have been confirmed, but he is understood to be about 30 years old, Diario de Mallorca reports. 

Doctors say it is 'a miracle' that he survived because he fell on to the bonnet of the car which was softer than if he had fallen on its roof.

An emergency call was made to the 061 service which sent several ambulances and the police to the scene. 

The hotel is situated off a roundabout at the entrance to Porto Cristo. 

The man jumped from the balcony during an argument with his partner, Spanish newspaper Ultimahora.es reports.

It claims the hotel had experienced 'problems' involving the man and woman the previous day.

Police have opened an investigation to determine what happened.
