Man found dead at Gold Coast church

A YOUNG MAN has fallen to his death in Surfers Paradise, in what appears to be a stunt-gone-wrong.

The body of the 23-year-old was found at 2am on Sunday, at the St Vincent’s Catholic Church, on the corner of the Gold Coast Highway and Hamilton Avenue.

Police have confirmed, preliminary investigations suggest the man had been climbing on the roof of the church when he fell through a skylight.


A report is being prepared for the coroner.
