Balcony fall leaves man fighting for life

A man is fighting for life after falling from a balcony at Coolangatta early this morning.

The 33-year-old tumbled several metres from a first-storey apartment and cracked his head on the ground below, after reportedly slipping while trying to catch an object being thrown to him.

Gary Berkowitz from the Queensland Ambulance Service said the man was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a critical condition.

"He suffered a significant head injury and was placed in an induced coma," he said.
