TRIBUTES TO HIGH-RISE FALL VICTIM
Man, 40, plunges to his death
Residents of a Cambuslang high-rise have paid tribute to their neighbour who tragically died after falling from a fifthfloor flat.
Alan Stewart, 40, is understood to have fallen from the veranda of his Sherry Heights home on Friday afternoon, March 18.
He died at the scene despite the efforts of the emergency services to save him.
People living at the flats situated off Allison Drive say
they were only alerted to the incident when they saw the police.
“I never saw anything or heard anything,” one of Alan’s neighbours said.
“We got a call from others in the flats and looked out our front and then the close window and I saw the police. I went downstairs and someone said someone had fallen from a veranda.
“Alan had been here a few years and we spoke to each other in passing. As far as I was aware there was nothing untoward.
“He was quite a quiet man and kept himself to himself. It’s a real tragedy.”
Floral tributes were laid for Alan at Sherry Heights over the weekend.
One note written by his loved ones said: “You are at peace at last Alan. God bless you. You will be sorely missed. Always in our thoughts and hearts. Love you always, your loving family.”
Residents living at Sherry Heights and others at nearby properties say police and forensic teams remained at the site until around 1am on Saturday morning completing what appeared to be forensic investigations.
One householder told the Reformer: “The police wouldn’t tell residents at the time anything other than a tragic accident had occurred.
“The shock for all of us living across from the flats and next to it has been terrible.
“It was truly an awful scene that shall haunt me forever.
“I hope this poor man rests at peace now.”
