A Canadian tourist has fallen to his death after a zipline cable snapped in northern Thailand, authorities say.

Authorities in Chiang Mai say the 25-year-old man was on holiday with his girlfriend.

BBC reports that the cable gave way soon after he was released from the start of the zipline course on Saturday, local media report.

The attraction, Flight of the Gibbon, has reportedly been closed while police investigate.

Earlier reports suggested that the man, who has not been officially named, fell 100m (328ft) from the zipline. However, police now say he fell from a height of 12m.
