Charlie Martin, 24, said he saw the two women arguing at the bar and tried to calm things down after one got a bloody nose

Martin, from Portishead, said: "It was a real shock and I immediately stepped in between them and said: 'Come on, come on, there's no need for that' when suddenly 'bang' the other smaller girl smacked her on the shoulder blade with her beer bottle.

"It was a really nasty hit and the red mist just descended."

Another witness described the scene as a "bloodbath".

Pakistani kebab shop worker Suleiman was working next door when the victim collapsed outside his restaurant.

He said: "I couldn't look it was so horrible. It was horrific. There was blood everywhere.

"I could hardly bring myself to look. It was a huge gash, and quite a hole that wouldn't stop bleeding."

Another eyewitness said: “It was a very deep cut. There was a lot of blood. She tried to get up but collapsed.”

Cole was flanked by two armed Civil Guards as she walked into a court building in the Majorcan capital Palma today to be questioned by a judge.

The hearing this afternoon was taking place behind closed doors. The judge will have to decide whether to remand her in custody or release her on bail.

Cole, thought to be a soldier from London, said nothing as she was escorted into court with her head bowed in handcuffs and wearing blue jean shorts and a white jean top.

Her alleged victim has been named as 22-year-old fellow soldier Sarah Ann Garrity, born in Glasgow but now living in Middlesborough.

She is in intensive care in Palma’s Son Espases Hospital where her condition this morning was described as "critical".

CLUB GLASS ATTACK

She was treated at the scene of the incident – Bananas nightclub at the top of the Magaluf strip – around 1am this morning after losing a large amount of blood when her throat was cut with the glass before being rushed to hospital.

Police sources described the pair as friends. The blonde held over the assault is understood to have been arrested at the scene.

One well-placed source said earlier today: "The girl who was injured suffered a cut to her throat. She was rushed to intensive care and had an emergency op.

"She’s still very serious but we’re hearing the operation has been successful and saved her life. The alleged attacker is in police custody."

CRITICAL CONDITION

It was not immediately clear if the casualty was glassed with a broken bottle or was hurt when a glass was thrown at her, although sources said they believed she suffered a cut throat after a glass was thrown.

Army sources confirmed Scottish-born Sarah Ann, who lives in Middlesbrough, is in the Royal Logistics Corps and Sydney in the Adjutant General Corps. Both were said to be “low-ranking'”.

A source at Son Espases Hospital in Palma confirmed this morning the injured woman was "critical" and in intensive care.

A source at an emergency response coordination centre said: "We received the first calls at 12.55am, about a fight in a nightclub between two female friends. The alert that came in said the incident involved a physical attack with a glass by one friend against another."

On Monday night Sarah Ann’s pal Shauna O’Neill wrote on Facebook: “Can’t believe it, stay strong mate! Shocking.

Pleasure to have trained with her at Deepcut. Fingers crossed she’ll be fine — she is a feisty one!!.’’

A British Army spokeswoman said: "We are aware of an incident involving two off-duty soldiers in Spain.

"An investigation by the local Spanish police is ongoing, and it would be inappropriate to comment further."
