A teenage Aussie tourist has been found dead after falling six floors from a hotel roof in Thailand.
Joshua James Connell, 19, from Canberra, was seen on CCTV walking along a wall at the side of the swimming pool at the Paripas Patong Resort in Phuket on Thursday.
Footage showed him throwing his hands in the the air as he crept onto a narrow white rail while balancing.
However, the young backpacker slipped as he reached the end of the rail - plunging around 15m to his death.
Mr Connell was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead shortly afterwards due to the severe injuries suffered in the fall.
