A British teenager has plummeted to his death from a hotel in Sydney.

The 18-year-old, who is yet to be named, fell from the 16th floor to the courtyard of the hotel in Saunders Street, Pyrmont, after partying with friends. It is said he only recently moved into the apartment block.

nvestigators said his death was more likely to be a tragic accident, describing it as a ‘misadventure’.

Resident Laura Riano who lives on the second floor said she was awake when she heard what she thought sounded like “heavy steel or rocks” crashing to the floor, according to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald. She then heard screams to “tell the ambulance to hurry up”.

Another person told the Daily Telegraph: “I heard the thud and thought someone had thrown a TV out of the window or something. I went down to see what happened and saw the guy laying there with blood coming out of his mouth.”
