UPDATE 1:50pm: A man who has survived a fall from a 10-storey apartment block in Perth’s western suburbs appears to have been attempting to jump from the roof to a tree.
Police believe the man was among a group of six people who climbed onto the roof of the building at Cambridge Street, Wembley, to watch the sun rise over the city.
The man suffered severe injuries, a police spokeswoman said.
He was rushed to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in a critical but stable condition and was then transferred to Royal Perth Hospital, where his condition was listed as serious but stable.
