    I dread seeing this story, as this man was my uncle, the full story is that he got some sketchy sleep pills from a chemist, he later went up to his room and the window was open and since he was drousy he sadly fell to his death. R.I.P Paul James McMurtrie, we miss you everyday.

    This must be investigated with great cautious as it can create bad image for tourism and safety. Please ask everyone who is in the trade to follow safety precautions and guidelines with utmost importance. Tourism development authority must have a policy on tourists safety and they must prepare a guideline for the facilitators. They also must have proper mechanism to implement and controls those measures.
