    I just read article confirming the death of an Austrialian athelete. It says he fell from the balcony at his room at the Flamingo. The article does have any details. I was just curious as I did not know Flamingo rooms had balconies, does anyone else know?

    Media is reporting that he was found on a "south driveway near Koval and Flamingo" This will be interesting. I always thought the top floors of the South tower looked like they had small balconies, but no clue if they do or not.

    This story is headline news in Australia with the football finals in full swing.

    Mysteriously, John McCarthy fell off the roof of the Flamingo and wasn't even staying there! It was the first night of the end of year trip for one of our football teams. These footballers are notorious for going absolutely wild on these trips - a player from another team overdosed whilst in Vegas a few years back. It seems a group of them got refused entry to a nearby nightclub (probably Drai's) at around 5am and then John McCarthy got separated from his teammates and then showed up unconscious in the Flamingo driveway shortly after.

    Seems like he got on the third floor roof (which I find strange - when The Hangover came out there was lots of talk about hotel security preventing anyone getting on the roof of hotels in Vegas), then tried to climb down one of the palm trees but fell.
