Woman dies after falling 10 storeys off Hyatt Regency Hotel, Sydney


Police arrested a man known to the victim, who is believed to be the woman’s boyfriend, but he has since been released.

It’s not the only balcony death that occurred last night. In a completely separate incident, a teenage boy fell off a balcony in the Gold Coast and tragically died.

The woman is yet to be formally identified, however, is believed to be aged 45.

A crime scene has been established which continues to be forensically examined.

A 48-year-old man – known to the woman, and believed to be her partner – was arrested at the scene and taken to Day Street Police Station.

He has since been released pending further investigation.

Police said it’s too early to determine whether the woman’s death is suspicious.

Police also confirmed the hotel is not a coronavirus isolation point for returning travellers.
