AN elderly man, believed to be 68-years-old, was found dead after he allegedly fell from the second floor at a block of flats in Northdale on Sunday afternoon.

Shortly after 1 pm on Sunday paramedics from ER24 arrived on the scene where they found the scene cordoned off by local police.

Upon assessment they found an elderly man with fatal injuries lying near the building.

According to bystanders the man apparently fell from the balcony on the second floor. There was nothing that paramedics could do for him and he was declared dead on the scene.

Local authorities who were present at the scene will be investigating further.
