Sydney tourism attraction closed after death plunges


One of Sydney's major tourism attractions has been closed "until further notice" following the death of a man who fatally plunged 258 metres from the Sydney Tower Eye on Sunday evening.

It was the second such death this year at the tallest building in the city, which is also known as Centrepoint Tower.

Tower's operator Merlin Entertainment closed the attraction for a month and undertook a safety review after a woman died in March, but the man also died after the tower reopened with police deeming his death "self harm".

The Skywalk will remain closed for at least a week, company director Rob Smith told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Merlin Entertainment also runs Madame Tussauds in Sydney, Sea Life Aquarium and ski resorts Falls Creek and Mount Hotham.
