Ex-footballer Lamrabatte named as tourist killed in cliff stunt as wife filmed
Retired footballer Mourad Lamrabatte has been identified as the tourist who was tragically killed when attempting a dangerous cliff stunt while on holiday in Majorca.
Lamrabatte, 31, was filmed performing the daredevil exploit by his wife as he fell 100ft to his death. The former SBV Vitesse footballer failed to clear the rocks beneath him after leaping feet-first from a high cliff near Magaluf.
The harrowing footage showed Lamrabatte letting out a massive scream when leaving the crag but rather than hitting the water, his momentum carried him into the razor-sharp rocks below. In footage seen by Daily Star Sport, his wife could be heard shouting: "Oh my God," after witnessing the fatal stunt.
Following his collision with the rocks, the Moroccan was filmed crashing into the sea, where he tragically died. A post-mortem revealed Lamrabatte drowned in a state of semi-consciousness rather than dying from impact injuries on the rockface.
As well as his devastated widow, Lamrabatte leaves behind two young children who also observed his death from a nearby boat.
Former club SBV Vitesse passed on condolences to Lamrabatte's family and friends with a heartfelt message on social media: "Vitesse has received the sad news that Mourad Lamrabatte has tragically died.
"The former Jong Vitesse striker had just turned 31. He wore the club colours during the 2010/2011 season, when he was part of the U23 team which won the U23 cup that season. In July 2010 he scored in a first-team exhibition game."
A club spokesman added: "Vitesse wishes Mourad’s family and friends a lot of strength in coping with their great loss."
