A British toddler has been airlifted to hospital after suffering serious head injuries in a freak accident in Majorca.
The 19-month-old boy is believed to have got hurt at around 2pm after falling from his mother’s arms near a stunning set of two beaches at Sa Calobra, tucked among steep cliffs on the island’s northwest coast.
One of the beaches, Torrent de Pareis, is accessed by a long footpath and and narrow tunnel.
The toddler’s parents are understood to have been walking towards the footpath when the youngster slipped from his mother’s arms.

A Civil Guard helicopter, carrying a doctor and a nurse, took the child to hospital.
Local reports said he is currently in a paediatric intensive care at Son Espases in the Majorcan capital Palma.
His condition has been described as serious and he is undergoing a series of tests.
Island paper Diario de Mallorca said the youngster had fallen just over 20 feet over the side of the footpath and said the family had arrived in the area by boat.
They are thought to be holidaymakers, although the Civil Guard could not be reached this afternoon for comment.
