MELBOURNE: A 21-year-old Indian-origin man today died after falling from 26th floor of a high-rise apartment building in Melbourne.
Rehmat Sandhu died falling from the glass balcony of a 36-storey apartment building of the City Road tower.
He was a member of a Punjab dance group based in Melbourne.
The Age newspaper quoted a nightclub owner Gary Vohra who had met Sandhu and his friends for drinks last night as saying "From what I heard, Rehmat went to sit on the balcony railing, and it was wet and he's gone over."
Local Police said that they were investigating the death of a man and were currently talking to several people who were in the apartment at the time of the incident.
"The death is deemed non-suspicious and police will prepare a report for the Coroner," Police said.
