A firefefighter left fighting for life after a mystery incident during his Magaluf stag do was injured during a fall from a building site, it was claimed today.
Alex Green, 26, was said to have disappeared from his group of relatives and friends after going to the toilets in a bar during his first night out last Friday.
His friend Scott Cash told how he got a phone call from Mr Green’s phone telling him he had been found unconscious in the street and insisted earlier this week: ‘No-one has got a clue what happened to him.’
The fireman, who lives and works in Rochdale, remains in intensive care in hospital in Majorca after suffering a bleed on the brain, fractures to his eye sockets, cheeks and nose, broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

Today respected island paper Diario de Mallorca said a police probe had ruled out a violent assault as the motive for Mr Green’s injuries – and was focusing on the theory he fell from the site of an old hotel where a new four-star hotel and shopping centre is being built.
Investigators are said to have reached the conclusion the firefighter’s head and facial injuries were consistent with an impact from a blunt object like a wooden support.
The paper also reported locals living near the building site had claimed they heard people goading him into entering the area, although police are not thought to have found anyone who witnessed a fall.
A night watchman tasked with protecting the building site has been spoken to by police, but has told officers he saw nothing and there was nobody in the protected area when colleagues alerted him.

Police attempts to discover the spot they believe Mr Green fell from are said to have proved unsuccessful so far.
Wellwishers have already donated more than £28,000 towards the cost of his medical care on a fundraising page.
The JustGiving page explains: ‘All donations are simply to cover the cost of his care and see him returned home safely to his adored son Zach.
‘Unfortunately Alex had alcohol in his system which could affect/void any insurance cover he may have and therefore lead to the insurance company refusing to pay.’
Mr Green’s fiancee Rebecca Thorpe, the mother of his two-year-old son, has flown out to Majorca to be with him.
She told the Manchester Evening News earlier this week: ‘We just can’t stop crying, but he’s amazing. We’ve got a two-year-old, we just want to get him home.
‘It’s just so out of the ordinary. He’s such a good person, so hard working. He’s such a devoted dad.’
He has undergone an operation and was placed into an induced coma following the incident
The spot the accident is said to have occurred at is the site of the former Jamaica Hotel in Calle Blanc in Magaluf.
The hotel was closed years ago because of aluminosis and construction began last November of a new four-star Melia 200-room hotel which has been described as ‘pivotal’ to the transformation of Magaluf.
Shops and restaurants are being built under the hotel along with an underground car park for 200 vehicles.
Meanwhile local authorities confirmed today that none of Mr Green’s friends had made a formal complaint about the incident to town hall-employed local police or the Civil Guard.
A source at Calvia Town Hall, which covers the Magaluf area, said they had dialled 999 the day of the incident but had not subsequently asked investigators to launch an investigation into what had happened.
His friends and family are now trying to raise £50,000 to pay for his medical treatment abroad
The local police report into the incident states: ‘On Friday September 15 at 7.30pm in Calle Blanc in Magaluf, a British tourist who had suffered a blow to the head received assistance.
‘The reason he had suffered his injuries was not immediately made clear but the cuts he had to his head were very possibly the result of an impact with a blunt object with sharp edges. The incident happened within a building site where the Hotel Jamaica stood.
‘His friends said they had received a call from the injured man’s mobile phone and that other person had asked for help but officers weren’t able to find out any more.
The report said paramedics then transferred the injured man in a stable condition to Son Espases Hospital.
‘The supervisor of the work going on at the building site was at the scene but said he hadn’t seen anything,’ it added.
‘There is a lot of building material at the site including supports, iron bars and planks of wood and the British tourist could have impacted against a number of things.
‘An inspection of the site was carried out but the supposed place of impact could not be determined. The involvement of other people in this incident has been initially ruled out.’
Sources at the Civil Guard, who have been sent the local police report, said it was unlikely much more would be done without a formal complaint from Mr Green’s family and friends but everything was pointing to him hurting himself in an accidental fall while under the influence of alcohol.
