sydney woman plunges to her death from the queen victoria building

A woman has died after plunging to her death at a busy shopping centre in Sydney’s CBD.

The 45-year-old fell from the upper level of the Queen Victoria Building at around 2.30pm on Wednesday. 

She is understood to have plunged over a railing down a stairwell on the southern side of the building near Assam restaurant.

Police blocked off the stairs and shut down the lift between them, as well as the area near the lift entrance outside Assam.

NSW Police said the incident was not suspicious and was a ‘self-harm incident’. 

‘The lower ground floor is closed to the public and there is advice to stay away from the area if possible,’ NSW Police said in a statement. 

Groups of tables were arranged to obscure the bottom floor area and almost all nearby shops were closed.

Where the woman fell is secluded and not visible from QVB’s main floor.

Security were seen talking just outside the screen while police guarded the stair entrances above. 

A worker from inside the Queen Victoria Building told Daily Mail Australia they heard a loud thud followed by a shout.

The source said police were quick to arrive and put up screens around the woman.

An employee at a nearby shop said he heard a loud bang but assumed something hand fallen over – until the screaming started.

‘I ran over and saw people coming out of the restaurant panicking, then I saw the body,’ he said.

‘She was already gone, lying face down with her arms out. There was blood everywhere and more coming out of her head.

‘I only saw she had blonde hair before I ran to get security.’

A report is being prepared for the coroner.

For confidential support call the Lifeline 24-hour crisis support on 13 11 14 or Mensline 1300 789 978.

‘World’s unluckiest man’ dies in house fire after surviving cancer, heroin addiction and robberies

worlds unluckiest man dies in house fire after surviving cancer heroin addiction and robberies

A man who described himself as the ‘world’s unluckiest man’ has died in a tragic house fire – after surviving cancer, a heroin addiction, several car accidents and countless robberies.

Paul Murphy, 62, gave himself the unfortunate title after revealing his long history of bad luck back in 2013.

Just when he thought his luck had finally turned around, his horrifically burned body was pulled from the wreckage of a house fire in Clemton Park, south west Sydney on August 29.  

Back in 2013, he’d lost a set of dentures during a night out on the town in Sydney, and was appealing with the local community to have them returned to him.

The then 55-year-old was living off a small pension, and simply couldn’t afford to buy a new set. 

The false teeth had been in his pocket rather than his mouth when he stumbled home because they hurt too much to wear constantly after he was attacked during a home invasion at his Redfern housing commission flat months earlier.

He stuck a printed sign around town which read: ‘Lost dentures. Upper and lower… owner far too drunk, fell over, a few too many times. I am a pensioner & desperately need my teeth. Reward offered’.

While the dentures were never returned, he was contacted by news.com.au, who he told about the series of unfortunate events which made up much of Mr Murphy’s life.

He was hooked on heroin by the time he graduated from Blakehurst High School in southern Sydney, and the addiction coupled with his dyslexia meant he always struggled to get a solid education.

Mr Murphy’s parents had enough money to send him to a rehabilitation clinic where patients were subjected to new electroconvulsive treatment known as deep-sleep therapy. 

The treatment was highly intrusive and required patients to be placed into a coma – sometimes for up to 39 days.

At least 27 patients died after receiving the treatment. Twenty-four of those deaths were suicides.

Mr Murphy received 42 electro-shocks in his 14-day stay, and came out of therapy with an addiction still as strong as the one he went in with, as well as trauma from the treatment.

He spent the next few years in and out of prison – primarily for drug related offences.

The addiction cost Mr Murphy many of his teeth, and all but one had fallen out or been removed by the time he left prison. 

When he was finally released, he made a pact to himself to get clean.

Mr Murphy landed a job as a car valuer, but after a serious car accident and several speeding tickets, he lost his license and then the job.

Desperate to remain in the industry, Mr Murphy opened a car detailing business.

As was his luck, Mr Murphy’s business opened next door to a funeral parlour. 

One day when he had several expensive cars in his shop, the corpse of a gang boss had been brought in next door.

That night, there was a drive-by attack in which someone – presumably a rival of the gang – firebombed the funeral parlour, destroying his business in the process.

He’d recently fallen behind on his insurance payments, and wasn’t covered. 

Eventually he got back on his feet again and began doing odd jobs for money, moving into the Redfern housing commission flats he would call home for the next decade.

Shortly after making the move, Mr Murphy was attacked by a local teenager.

The boy was in a car and swung a baseball bat at Mr Murphy from the side of the road. The impact shattered the bones in his shoulder and he was forced to go to hospital.

Then again on New Years Day in 2011, Mr Murphy was standing on a footpath near his home when a motorbike rider crashed into him after speeding through the lights. 

Mr Murphy’s run of bad luck

  • Survived cancer
  • Girlfriend ran off with his best mate
  • Heroin addiction from a young age coupled with dyslexia impacted education opportunities
  • Victim of countless home invasions 
  • Involved in several car accidents
  • Car detailing business set alight in revenge attack on next door business
  • Had fallen behind on insurance payments prior to firebombing
  • Set on fire during a home invasion
  • Died in a house fire 
<!—->Advertisement

He broke his collarbone, shoulder, sternum and seven ribs. 

With the substantial payout he received from the accident, Mr Murphy splurged on a new television, computer, stereo and electric pushbike.

But shortly after, Mr Murphy’s flat was broken into and everything was stolen.

Again, he felt like he was back at square one. 

In another horrifying incident, a balaclava-clad thief sprayed fuel on his arm and set Mr Murphy on fire, but still, he survived. 

While he managed to install a steel door, his flat was broken into time and time again in the decade to follow, until eventually he managed to escape and move to Clemton Park late last year. 

When a journalist asked if he was the unluckiest person in the world, Mr Murphy responded: ‘About that, yeah’. 

He’d even been left heartbroken when the love of his life ran off with his best friend and survived a traumatic cancer battle.

But he truly believed his luck was changing, and was saving his pennies from the pension and odd jobs to install air conditioning in his beloved new home. 

In the end, he died after falling asleep while trying to cook some food in his new home.

He was taking medication for high blood pressure which contributed to his drowsiness.

In the early hours of August 29, Mr Murphy tried to cook some chips, but nodded off while the oven was on.

About 5.30am, neighbours called the fire brigade to warn that the flat was on fire, and emergency services tried desperately to revive an unconscious Mr Murphy.

He could not be saved.

Terrified mum’s hilarious post about a harmless garden lizard leaves hundreds in hysterics

terrified mums hilarious post about a harmless garden lizard leaves hundreds in hysterics

A Pakistani mother who recently relocated to Australia was frozen with fear after spotting a small and harmless lizard in the back garden of her new home.

The woman, who is believed to have moved from Lahore to Sydney, noticed the skink on the patio and feared it was a venomous reptile.

Petrified of the ‘mysterious’ creature, she posted photos in a Facebook community group begging locals for advice on keeping it away from her home.

The post left hundreds in hysterics, with Australians forced to reassure her that no harm would come from the common garden skink, affectionately known as a ‘backyard buddy’ who eats insects and keeps other crawling pests at bay.

What is a skink?

A skink is a smooth-bodied lizard with short or absent limbs, typically found burrowing in sandy ground.

They are found in Australia, Southeast Asia and parts of North America.

Source: Britannica

<!—->Advertisement

‘Hi I am new in Australia and was living in [an apartment] now I am shifted in house (sic),’ the caption begins. 

‘Today I saw a reptile in [the] backyard. I am afraid of it. It can come inside or can sit in shoes. Please help me how to get rid of this (sic).’

One mother poked fun at the woman’s naivete with a comment warning her of the ‘dangers’ of the ‘poisonous Australian shoe skink’ – an imaginary animal that does not exist.

‘They grow to over 19 feet long, but when they are babies they hide on shoes and bite off pinky toes,’ she said.

‘Pinky toes are their primary food source for the first year of their lives. They are attracted to foot odours and are highly venomous.’

But kindhearted group members outweighed those who taunted her, with many reassuring the woman the lizard has more reason to fear humans than we have him.

‘Don’t panic. He’s a good guy. He is more scared of you, he will get out of your way, and if he does come inside, he’ll kill any spiders and bugs he finds while he’s there, then leave when he’s ready,’ one woman replied. 

‘It’s a skink! They’re so cute,’ said another.

‘They don’t bite and a quite fun to watch. They are really useful at bug control as they eat them. Even the presence of one little fella will keep them away.’

Others thanked the mother for bringing a smile to their face and welcomed her to her new home. 

‘Welcome to Australia, we do have a LOT of small reptiles. Most just mind their own business,’ one woman said.

‘It’s just a harmless native. Sorry you were scared by it,’ said a second.

‘Aussies love to tease people with tales about our dangerous animals but most of them are more afraid of us than we are of them.’

A third assured the mother that even Australians get confused by their eclectic wildlife.

‘My sister used to call these baby crocodiles,’ she wrote.

Jennifer was one of the nominees this year for Lead Actress in a Drama series for her work in Apple TV Plus’ The Morning Show.

She was nominated alongside The Crown’s Olivia Colman, Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer, Ozark’s Laura Linney, Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh and Euphoria’s Zendaya – with the latter star scooping the award.

Jennifer previously won an Emmy in 2002 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role of Rachel in Friends.  

She also earned four more Emmy nominations for her time on Friends, plus Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her stint on 30 Rock in 2009.

The Morning Show marks Aniston’s first return to TV in a starring role, playing Alex Levy in The Morning Show, inspired by Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.

Alex Levy is an anchor on a hit morning show in New York, whose partner gets fired after a sexual misconduct scandal as she fights to keep her job from emerging reporter Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon).

Jennifer’s appearance comes after she had a virtual reunion with ex-husband Brad Pitt during a star-studded table read of the Fast Times at Ridgemont High script last week.

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards took place with a largely virtual ceremony due to the pandemic on Sunday night. 

Producers sent over 130 home video kits to stars for their remote speeches, and Jimmy Kimmel anchored the show from the Staples Centre as other presenters delivered gongs to some of the winners’ homes in full tuxedo hazmat gear. 

Host Jimmy, 52, admitted the traditional glitz and glamour could end up a ‘beautiful disaster’ as the Emmys became the latest major awards show to grapple with holding a ceremony during a still-raging pandemic.

Choosing the comedian to emcee the ceremony reverses course from last year’s no-host ceremony.
