A 20 year old British tourist has died in Australia after falling from the top of a waterfall in New South Wales.

The man, who has not yet been named, was walking with friends in the Blue Mountains near Sydney when he slipped and fell about 100m over the edge of the Wentworth Falls, according to police.

This woman was at the scene at the time of the incident, and described what happened.

"We were at the bottom of the waterfalls and I saw a group of French and English kids, well, you know adults, mucking around on the rocks and it's very slippery. Then they went down to the next one. I knew something was going to happen and then I just saw panic."

Strong winds meant the 20-year-old's body could not be immediately recovered, but a rescue team later worked with a police helicopter to help find the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene. His family and the British consulate in Australia have been notified of his death.
