A two-storey restaurant collapsed on the Spanish island of Majorca on Thursday night leaving four people dead and 16 injured.

The Medusa Beach Club is located in the capital Palma de Mallorca.

The incident happened at around 20:30 local time.

Reports suggest that people on the ground floor fell into the basement below where customers and staff were crushed. Police say the area caved in because of the excessive weight that was placed on it.

An investigation has been launched to see if the building complied with regulations.

According to police, the deceased were two German women, a Spanish man and a Senegalese man.

Eyewitnesses have explained the collapse as similar to the sound of a bomb going off. When firefighters arrived on the scene, people were screaming and crying as they stood among the rubble on the floor. One firefighter described the scene as “nightmarish” to Ultima, a local newspaper.
