A 15-year-old French tourist has fell to the floor of a building, located on Rua da Ponte Nova in Funchal.

The girl seemed to become unbalanced and fell from a balcony, apparently on the third floor, from a height of between 10 and 15 meters, suffering several injuries in the body.

The girl fell on an awning of an esplanade, which dampened the fall and avoided a tragic outcome.

Further details on the state of the tourist are unknown. It is only known that the firefighters were called to the scene, as well as the Rapid Intervention Medical Team (EMIR), administering first aid and transporting the victim to the hospital.
