The latest deadly holiday craze that is claiming young people’s lives

We really don't understand why this latest trend appeals to teenagers to risk their lives for online attention. 

The craze is called 'balconying' which involves young Irish and British teenagers posting videos of themselves online hopping from balcony to balcony in their holiday resorts.

This terrifying trend has claimed 46 lives since it began in 2012, reports the Sun.

The latest incident according to the Sun ended in an 18-year-old Irish girl being fined for refusing to stop jumping from balcony to balcony when Majorca authorities had asked her to.

Subsequently, the publication reports that the teenager fell from the first floor and was treated for minor injuries. 

Police in the popular tourist resort has introduced new laws against balconying

If caught an individual could face a minimum penalty of €600 and a maximum of €1,500, says the Sun. 

However, it is unknown how much the Irish teenager will be fined.

Additionally, the police have now issued videos in English to British and Irish holidaymakers to deter them from taking on the craze.

If you're thinking about getting involved in the trend, think twice about the serious consequences this could have not only for your life, but your family too.
