Medics were alerted at 12.30am yesterday and took him to hospital in the capital Palma.
Unconfirmed reports claimed he had taken drugs before falling.
One said: “He was very serious when he was taken away in an ambulance from the scene.
“He fell from a second-floor balcony and his multiple injuries included a broken pelvis as well as broken legs.
“He was stabilised at the scene before being taken to Son Espases Hospital.”
Last Tuesday a 35-year-old man died after plunging from a second-floor balcony in the Ibizan resort of San Antonio.
Police sources said drugs were found in his room during a subsequent search and officers are working on the theory he may have been acting under the influence of drugs.
After he died it emerged the same man had cheated death in a 30-foot fall in the same resort nearly five years ago.
He ended up impaled on the pole of a sun umbrella in a near-tragedy in September 2018.
Horrific photos taken at the time showed the parasol deeply embedded in his leg.
On June 23 amateur footballer John McKenna, 22, from Carlisle in Cumbria, died in the same resort after plunging from a three-star hotel.
He was pronounced dead at the scene following desperate attempts by paramedics to save him.
Pal and former Carlisle United player Josh Dixon said in a social media tribute: “Absolutely heartbroken writing this.
“One of my closest mates all the way through school.
“Wherever you went you would put a smile on someone’s face.
“Will be a huge miss to us all. Rest easy big man.”
