AT midnight last night. Les Mazlan, a boarder at the Hermit Park Hotel, [Townsville Queensland] walked off the top balcony of the hotel and was found lying on the footpath clad in pyjamas. Mazlan, who told Ambulance bearers that he often walked in his sleep, suffered concussion, abrasions to his head, and an injury to his right hip. He was admitted to the General Hospital at an early hour this morning.
