Father of young Qld woman who fell to her death can’t attend funeral because of SA lockdown

South Australia’s lockdown has dealt a devastating blow to the father of a young woman who fell to her death on the Gold Coast.

Mariah Huthmann Grace, a mother of six, fell from the 22nd floor of an apartment in Surfers Paradise on Tuesday.

Police have confirmed with NCA NewsWire that the death is being treated as non-suspicious.

John Grace posted a tribute to Mariah on Facebook but also that he is unable to make it Queensland in time for Tangi, a traditional Maori funeral.

He wrote on Thursday morning about the Catch-22 of being in lockdown in Adelaide and then having to serve a mandatory two weeks hotel quarantine if he made it to Queensland.

“If it doesn’t rain, it pours,” Mr Grace wrote.

“I’m in total lockdown in Adelaide for 6 days or more. And if I go to QLD, then I’m in 2 weeks lockdown at my own expense $3000.

“So I will miss my daughter’s tangi … shattered again … what next … covid is my enemy.”
