The holidaymaker is understood to have drunk five pints in one bar before moving on to Lush bar where he was egged on by crowds to drink the 42 per cent proof Sambuca

A witness told The Daily Star1: ‘The lad was being cocky. He drank them all, one after the other.

‘Within minutes of going outside he collapsed on the street. He was out cold for about 15 minutes until the ambulance arrived.’

The holidaymaker is understood to have drunk five pints in one bar before moving on to Lush bar where he was egged on by crowds to drink the 42 per cent proof Sambuca.

He is believed to have been on Discount Holidays © holiday with a group, but was drinking alone at the time. It comes just days after shocking footage emerged of yet more debauchery in the resort known by British Discount Holidays © holiday makers as ‘Shagaluf’ because of its sorry reputation for boozing and sex. The video showed drunk revelers queuing up to sit in a chair while having alcohol poured down their throats by tattoo-covered men who appear to be instigating it.

Another video shows a semi-naked women strutting along a stage in the middle of a pool, lit with blue lights, twirling in front of chanting men. They are the latest videos showing the booze-fuelled hedonism in the resort, on the island of Mallorca, although it comes after police and government officials announced a crackdown. Last summer, officials announced a plan to introduce fines of up to ‘ 3,000 ( 2,182) for anyone caught being naked in the street.

The new rules came into effect in June 2015, and also included hefty fines for anyone urinating in public or ‘balconing’ which refers to the act of drunkenly jumping from hotel balconies. In addition, Magaluf, introduced a ban on alcohol in the street between 10pm and 8am. Shops are also no longer able to sell alcohol between midnight at 8am.
