Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has described Mr Simpson's death as a "shocking tragedy".

The death is being treated as an accident, said Sgt.

Simpson was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

'It is a shocking tragedy, A young life lost'. After everyone went back inside Simpson's apartment, his friend expressed jealousy over his actions and Simpson suggested the trust game on his balcony to show that he meant nothing untoward by his actions.

"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.

Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says it's assisting the diplomat's relatives, who are asking for privacy.

Australian U.N. diplomat Julian Simpson, 30, has fallen to his death in a tragic incident following a night out with his wife and friends.

New York City police found his body on the second-floor terrace of the apartment building on Clinton Street near E. Houston Street at around 1:35 a.m.

Simpson served as Australia's second secretary to the United Nations. But Brown said media reports of a trust game, where a person deliberately falls back and relies on another to catch them, have not been confirmed.

A representative of the Permanent Mission of Australia to the United Nations has not yet responded to the Post's request for comment. There, Mr. Simpson told his colleague's husband that his intentions were never to scare his wife, according to a police official who declined to be named because the investigation is continuing.

In 2016, Simpson was among a group of diplomats who spoke to Australian students at the UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development in NY. "Shocked and saddened", he wrote. "My honest condolence to the wife, family members and Mission colleagues of this Australian diplomat".
