Yet another British vacationer has been injured "balconing," a faddish activity among Europeans involving jumping between hotel balconies and off them into pools. Euro Weekly News reports that earlier this week, a 19-year-old fell about 20 ft. while jumping between rooms at a hotel on Majorca.

The young man was hurt, but will survive. Others have not been so lucky: According to USA Today, 6 tourists died while balconing last year.
