A MAN is dead after falling from a balcony during a night out in Fremantle last night.

The incident happened at the Sail and Anchor Hotel on South Terrace about 8.30pm.

Emergency services rushed to the scene and the 28-year-old man, from West Perth, was taken to Fiona Stanley Hospital.

He died in hospital overnight.

A police spokeswoman said the man was sitting on the back of a sofa chair on the hotel’s second-storey balcony.

It is understood that the man was leaning back, before he fell through a plastic cafe blind to the pavement.

Passers-by and patrons were stunned as they watched the man being helped by ambulance officers on the ground.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
