Diplomat Dies in a Fall After Celebrating Australia's Gay Marriage Vote

An Australian diplomat fell to his death from a NY terrace after playing a high-risk trust game with a friend that went wrong, police said.

Simpson later offered to prove his trustworthiness to the man by playing a game of "trust fall" on an apartment terrace.

While they drank outside, Simpson led Waugh's wife, who is also an Australian diplomat, to a higher landing and twirled her around - apparently scaring her, sources said. The building was lit in rainbow colors in recognition of a survey that found most Australians support marriage equality and ensured that lawmakers will vote on a same-sex marriage bill this year.

"I met with him just recently when I attended the UN General Assembly leaders week in New York" she told Sky News. This all transpired around 1:35 am yesterday morning, and police believe that alcohol played a role.

Simpson, a junior diplomat with the Australian Mission to the United Nations, was said to have been playing a "trust game" with an unidentified male house guest, according to the New York Post, citing unidentified police sources. "It's a shocking tragedy - a young life lost".

"He will be remembered as someone dedicated to the service of our nation as a member of Australia's foreign service", Bishop said in a statement on Thursday.
