A Queensland teen celebrating Schoolies has been taken to hospital this morning after falling several floors from his Surfers Paradise apartment.
The 17-year-old reportedly leant over the balcony railing of the Cypress Avenue building to pick something up when he tumbled over the side, falling from the third floor around 3.00am.
“We believe he’s dropped an item of property and it’s landed on a ledge and he’s leant over to collect it and he’s fallen two floors,” Angelique Maloney from Queensland Police told Channel Nine.

He miraculously escaped with only a suspected fractured pelvis and is said to be doing fine.
Police have warned revellers to stay away from balconies if they have consumed alcohol.
