POLICE IN AUSTRALIA are investigating the death of a 27-year-old Irishman Kevin Browne who died after a suspected fall at a mine tourist attraction.
ABC News reports that it is believed that Browne slipped and fell from rigging at the Hard Times mine in Queensland sometime in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The old mine-shaft in Mount Isa is used by the local council to give guided tours to tourists about mining history in the area.
Local police say that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
“There is a six-foot high chain wire fence around the perimeter but it would appear that he has been able to gain entry,” Superintendent Russell Miller told the station.
“We are still looking for anyone who may have seen a male in the vicinity, probably around about midnight on Saturday night,” he said.
