This news is so sad to hear.
Hypnotist Scott Lewis, a performer with the Illusionists 2.0 magic troupe, was staying at the Goldsborough Mort apartments in Sydney, Australia, when he fell to his death, landing on the fourth floor balcony.
His group was performing at the Opera House, and when he failed to show up to the tour bus on Saturday morning, he was reported missing.
Witnesses have said they saw an object fall at least 6 stories, and when police arrived on the scene, Scott was found dead.
Police have said there's currently no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, but inquiries are expected to be made on whether or not he was climbing from one balcony to another at the time of his fall.
Meanwhile, the Sydney Opera House had this to say about his tragic death:
Our deepest sympathies to the family & friends of Dr. Scott Lewis, and cast & crew of @Illusionists12. The show will continue in his honour.
