Bridegroom dies from head injury as buck's night goes bad


A young man celebrating his bucks' night has died in an accident at an inner-city pub in Sydney.

Matthew Bell, 26, was with mates at Jacksons on George hotel, near The Rocks, on Saturday night when it is believed he tried to slide down a staircase handrail between the second and third floors. Police think he was attempting to slide backwards down the handrail but lost his balance and fell, landing at the bottom of the stairwell.
