Illusion show cancelled after hypnotist falls to his death

A WORLD-renowned hypnotist in Australia for a series of shows as part of the Illusionists 2.0 magic troupe has fallen to his death at an inner Sydney apartment block.

The body of Scott Lewis was found on a fourth floor balcony at Pyrmont on Saturday at 9.40am.

Witnesses told police they saw an object fall as many as six storeys at the Goldsbrough Mort apartments before realising it was a body.

New South Wales Police said there were no suspicious circumstances, but investigations were being made to determine whether Mr Lewis was climbing from one balcony to another when he fell.

A spokesperson for Vegas-style extravaganza said the shows will go on despite Lewis' death
