An Indian Dubai resident died after falling from a building’s eighth-floor balcony, it has been reported.

The man, who had just graduated from a medical training course in the US, fell from an apartment belonging to his parents in the Al Rais Shopping Centre building in Bur Dubai.

He was killed at  10am on Saturday after landing on a first-floor balcony in the building, reported Gulf News.

The 21-year-old returned to the UAE a week before his death after completing the course, according to the report, which said the victim’s sister was also studying in the US.
