‘It’s just so cruel’: shock and grief over death of Naum Dislievski

The sudden death of a 20-year-old man at a Wollongong nightspot has sent shockwaves through the Illawarra.  

Former Figtree High School student Naum Dislievski collapsed during a night out at a Wollongong’s Mr Crown – formerly The Glasshouse. NSW Ambulance paramedics were called to the venue at 12.20am Sunday. 

He was treated and transported to Wollongong Hospital, but could not be revived. 

Police say they do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances involved.  

Friends have described Mr Dislievski as “a beautiful soul”. “A life taken way too young!” wrote Daniel Niceski, in a post to social media.

“A person that put everyone before himself. There was not a moment you did not have a smile on your face.” 

Lalita Sitnikoska described Mr Dislievski’s death as “an unimaginable tragedy”. 

Another, Elizabeth Veljanovski, voiced her shock. “It's just too devastating for me to even comprehend, I can't stop crying. It’s just so cruel.”  

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

I'm completely shocked upon hearing this news right now. Us here at Woolies petrol Unanderra are devestated about this tragic news. Naum was such a beautiful person with a beautiful soul and I admired his love and respect for his parents and his sister. We would always chat, laugh & even tease him on his scent always smelt beautiful & my fellow coworker Jane would tease him on his reasons for buying chewing gum on a Friday night. Definitely not fair on life's scale of fairness. Rest in peace! Kirste Lumley, Unanderra

Although I didn't know Naum, we did go to the same school and everyone that knew him had only kind things to say about his good personality! Taken far too young my heart and condolences go to his family through such a difficult time! I understand now that the good truly do die young!! It was people like him we need more in this world, may he rest in peace! Bog da go prosti Justin, Coachwood
