London, May 30 (IANS) A young woman, who fell 80 ft from a hotel balcony in Majorca, an island in the Mediterranean, was trying to throw a spider out of her suitcase, according to her mother.

Chantelle Serginson, 24, of Middlesbrough town in Britain, was in intensive care after she fractured her skull and legs in multiple places after falling from the sixth floor of a hotel in Magaluf, Spain, the Daily Mail reported.

Some reports suggested Serginson fell from the balcony following a row with her mother. However, Spanish police say the fall is being treated as an accident.

Chantelle’s mother Kimberley Serginson, 44, who has been at her daughter’s side at hospital, said: “We weren’t having a row. You would laugh if you heard what happened.

“We had found a spider in the suitcase and we were shouting and laughing about who was going to throw it out. We were saying: ‘You throw it out, no you throw it out’.

“In the end we both grabbed the suitcase and threw the spider out,” the mother said, adding that was when her daughter lost her balance and plunged to the ground.

Serginson’s condition had been described by the hospital as critical, but on Tuesday her mother said her daughter had made a “brilliant” recovery.
