A British man was in a critical condition after he and his lover fell from a balcony in the South of France.
The man, 30, and his Canadian lover were taking part in a ‘passionate sex session’ in full view when they fell 12ft in the resort of Le Cannet, near Cannes in the South of France.
They fell over the railings at around 12.30am on Saturday and were rushed to Pasteur Hospital, Nice. His partner, 28, suffered minor injuries and is believed to have been cushioned by her lover when they landed.
An investigator said: “The couple were seen making love on the balcony of their holiday rental flat. ‘They were becoming very passionate indeed, and suddenly toppled from the first floor of the villa into the street below. Neighbours called the emergency services immediately.”
Police are now investigating whether the couple were drunk or on drugs and nobody else is believed to have been involved.
