French tourist's misadventure led to falling death on site

POLICE believe a man who fell to his death at the 1 William Street construction site may have been scaling a crane for fun when he slipped.

Investigators are not treating the 21-year-old French tourist's death as a suicide, and instead believe it was a case of misadventure.

The man broke into the site on Sunday evening before climbing the crane.

A police spokesman could not confirm a Nine News report that the man was taking a selfie when he fell.

His body was discovered about 6am on Monday.
