A man has died in Sydney’s CBD after jumping from Sydney Tower while on a skywalk, police and paramedics have confirmed.
It has been reported the man removed his harness.
At 2.40pm on Thursday, New South Wales Police and ambulance were called to a building on Castlereagh Street near the busy Pitt Street mall to attend to the man, who died at the scene, The Guardian said.
A statement from NSW Ambulance said the man had begun threatening self-harm while on the skywalk. He then jumped to his death. The skywalk is more than 250m above ground.
Two paramedic crews responded and treated witnesses for shock. A police spokesman said an operation was under way and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
