An 18-year-old man who went to Queensland with friends to celebrate the finishing school was found dead next to the outdoor pool in the early hours of this morning.
Queensland police were called to the Surf Regency Residential Building on Leykkou Street in Surfers Paradise around 5 am after reports that the man's body was motionless on the grass.
A Queensland police spokesman told news.com.au that death was not considered a suspicious or unfortunate accident.
Witnesses told Bulletin Gold Coast that the paramedics were working desperately to save the young man’s life without success.
It is believed that the teenager lived in Berowa, where he played cricket for the Beruva Cricket Club and was a recent graduate of the Turramurra High School, all on the north coast of Sydney.
One member of the Cricket Club Berowra told news.com.au that they knew about the death of a teenager and were devastated for their family.
“He was a good family,” a club spokesman said.
A toxicology report will be conducted, but graduate colleagues of the school stated that the teenager was choking on nitrous oxide on the balcony shortly before his death.
It is reported that counseling is offered to adolescents who stayed in the same complex.
Another teenager, Isabel Coleman, died after falling from a balcony while celebrating the School in Surfers Paradise in 2012. Former student of Mt St Michael & # 39; s College fell to her death from the complex Chevron Renaissance.
