Teenager dies after falling four stories from balcony in Surfers Paradise – ABC News

A teenager has fallen to his death from a balcony on the Gold Coast.

Police say the 19-year-old Brisbane man was found dead at the foot of an apartment building in Surfers Paradise just after 3:00am on Saturday.

It is believed he was partying with friends when he fell from the fourth floor of the complex on View Avenue.

Four people have been taken to Robina Hospital in stable conditions and another three were assessed at the scene.

A Queensland police spokesman said they were suffering from “drug-induced” medical conditions.

“We are speaking with everyone but it looks like it was a party,” the spokesperson said.

“Police attended a unit above where four teenage males were in a semi-conscious state, after consuming prescription drugs.

“A crime scene has been established for the whole complex.”

Police said the people involved were from two separate apartments within the same complex.

The death is not being treated as suspicious.

Investigations are continuing.
