Woman dead, man critical after falling from Melbourne building

A WOMAN is dead and a man is fighting to stay alive in hospital after the pair fell from an inner-city apartment building in Melbourne.

The couple was found at the base of the Smith Street building in Collingwood just after 11:30am local time.

It’s believed they had fallen from a height of around 10 metres.


Sadly, the woman had died on impact. The man, however, miraculously survived the fall.

He was found clinging to life, barely breathing with life-threatening injuries to his head and upper body.

Paramedics attempted to stabilise him at the scene before rushing him to the Alfred Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

The circumstances surrounding the couple’s fall are yet to be determined.

Police are still on the scene investigating.
