An American stage hypnotist in Sydney for a series of shows at the Opera House has fallen to his death at an inner-city apartment block.
Witnesses have told police they saw an object fall as many as six storeys at the Goldsborough Mort apartments in Pyrmont Street. Police say there are no suspicious circumstances, but it is understood that inquiries will be made to determine if Dr Lewis was climbing from one balcony to another when he fell.
Ms Waack, from Yallourn North in Victoria, said she then heard a woman screaming hysterically. “I went out to the walkway outside our apartment and saw a woman walking along with her head in her hands, screaming.
“She was saying ‘do they know?, do they know?’,” Ms Waack said.
“Then we saw the police arrive soon after that.”
In promotional material for the show Dr Lewis is described as the host of the longest running hypnosis show in Las Vegas history where members of the audience are hypnotised on stage to perform comedic and outrageous acts.
