Toddler fighting for her life after being hit by falling roof tile in freak hotel accident as she sheltered from rain
A TODDLER is fighting for her life after being hit by a roof tile that was falling from a hotel in Majorca.
The 14-month-old girl and her parents were said to have taken refuge from the rain under an entrance porch of the hotel before tragedy struck.
The heavy tile then slid on top of the tot during the freak accident at the Green Garden Aparthotel in Cala Rajada at around midday on Friday.
The youngster was stabilised at the scene before being rushed to the island’s Son Espases hospital and admitted to a paediatric intensive care unit.
The little girl, who was on holiday with her family, is believed to be Dutch.
A source at Son Espases Hospital said the toddler is in a "very serious" condition after suffering severe head injuries.
Civil Guard officers on the Spanish island are investigating and will present a report to a local judge tasked with coordinating the probe.
Local reports said that the tile was thought to have come loose because of the heavy rain.
It is not known whether the family were staying at the hotel or simply passing by when the baby was injured.
No one from the hotel, described as a four-star "family-friendly" accommodationwith services "specially designed for children’s entertainment and adults’ relax", was immediately available for comment.
