A 21-year-old woman has died after falling off a hotel balcony on the Kingsway late Wednesday night. Police have questioned a man about the incident, but no further details are immediately available.
The woman fell from a balcony on the eighth floor of Rydges hotel on the Kingsway, Cronulla, at around 11:30, according to ABC news. She landed on the second floor terrace of the hotel. Paramedics were able to rush the woman to St George Hospital. But the woman died Thursday morning due to extensive injuries.
A witness has told reporters about hearing a loud fight prior to the incident.
"You could hear them arguing and fighting and screaming but I couldn't understand what she was saying," witness Mikayla Sergi was quoted by news.com.au Thursday morning. "It was really loud and then it just went quiet," she added.
The witness said she saw blood all over the ground an hour after hearing what sounded like a loud fight.
Police has interviewed a man believed to be inside the hotel room of the woman who fell to her death. The man, described in media reports as possible boyfriend of the woman, has been released. Police told the media the man claims he did not witness the incident. There were no immediate reports of any charges.
Police authorities are expected to address the public in a press conference Thursday morning. It is understood the woman's name has not been released in order to properly inform her family of the tragedy.
