A shocking video shows a group of 40 young Instagram influencers leaping from a balcony into a swimming pool while breaking coronavirus rules in a Marbella villa.
In the clip, partygoers jump from an upper level into the swimming pool below in a dangerous trend known as “balconing”.
The house party was held in the residential area of San Pedro Alcantara in the municipality of Marbella on the Spanish Costa del Sol on Saturday, November 14.
Police arrived at around 9.15 pm and broke up the social gathering, sanctioning 23 of the 40 revellers for breaking rules such as not wearing mandatory face masks.
The party was organised by the unnamed owner of the company Hellosaturday, which represents online influencers, and a report against the suspect has been filed by the police, according to local media.
Among the influencers was reportedly Omar Montes who participated in one day of the party.
Some influencers such as @xinnixinnita5 and @srtagriezmann shared videos of the event – although it is unclear if they were there.
Police evicted the party-goers from the villa despite organisers promoting the event as lasting until tomorrow.
The video footage shows partygoers jumping from the house roof into the ground floor swimming pool, which is known as balconing.
According to the regional government, 3,179 people have been hospitalised with COVID-19 in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia, and 503 are in intensive care units.
The Andalusian authorities have introduced a curfew between the hours of 10 pm to 7 am to prevent the spread of the virus while all ‘non-essential’ activities have been halted.
Bars and restaurants have to close by 9.30 pm, although delivery services are allowed to continue until 11.30 pm and venues have to operate with 30% capacity inside and 75% in outdoor terraces.
Marbella will enter a Tier-4 lockdown which will see the closure of all nightclubs and bars on November 23.
