Police say the death of a man who fell from a 17th-floor Adelaide balcony overnight was a terrible accident.
Patrols and paramedics were called to the Central Adelaide Apartments at the corner of Grote and Morphett streets just before 1:00am, but could not save the 27-year-old.
Senior Constable Matt Brown said the man made a fatal decision.
“Police investigating the incident believe the man fell from the 17th floor balcony trying to gain access to an adjoining balcony,” he said.
“There doesn’t appear to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident.”
The circumstances of the death are still being investigated.
