The horror incident took place at Cala Vinyes in Calvia when the rock Sandra was sitting on gave way as she was next to Adelardo Contador, 25.

The friends, both waiters at a bar in nearby Palmanova, had gone for a moonlit walk one night and walked down steps to reach the rocks when the tragedy struck.

Adelardo said: “We sat down on the rock and before noticing, it had fallen over us. I had gone to my boss’ restaurant and waited for her to come out. She had told me she was showing me a very beautiful place”.

“She had been there last year. When we sat down on the rock, it counterbalanced. The rock we were sitting on fell onto us.”

‘HALF-TONNE ROCK’

The rock, reportedly weighing half a tonne, collapsed onto the pair and killed Sandra instantly while Adelardo had his legs trapped under it.

He said: “I started to call her, Sandra, Sandra, but she was not answering me. Thanks to my mobile phone, I could call the emergency services. I tried to calm down despite the pain.”

Adelardo used his phone to signal his position to the emergency services who rescued him, but he suffered broken vertebrae.

He slammed authorities for leaving the area open to the public.

Adelardo Contado

He said: “That place should not be like that, open to the public, how is it possible that there are steps to get to the stones when some years ago a similar thing happened in Malgrats?”

David Contador, the victim’s brother, said that it took two hours for his brother to be rescued.

Speaking about his Sandra, Adelardo said: “We had known each other since last year.

“She was from Yecla, in the south-eastern Spanish region of Murcia, and I am from Barcarrota, in the western province of Badajoz. We laughed a lot.”

It is unclear if the accident is being investigated by the authorities.
