Schoolie Found Dead After Falling From Gold Coast Balcony
Sad news this morning as it has been confirmed that a Sydney teenager, identified as Hamish Bidgood, has passed away on the Gold Coast.
The teen was reportedly celebrating schoolies when he fell to his death from the 11th storey of a Surfers Paradise Balcony, at Surf Regency Holiday Apartments.
QLD Police attended the scene at approximately 5am on Laycock Street and CPR was administered but he could not be revived.
An investigation has been instigated as to whether the 18 year old was ingesting nitrous oxide before the fatal accident.
A Snapchat video from earlier in the night had been circulated where a friend reportedly joked that "This is the beginning of the end for Hamish Bidgood".
The video has since been removed.
The death is not being treated as suspicious.
