A 20 year old British man has died after falling off a balcony in Pattaya this afternoon.

Pattaya police were alerted to the man’s death at 1 pm today. He was found clad only in his boxers.

His name is currently being withheld until his relatives have been contacted regarding his death.

Pattaya police say the man was staying on the fifth floor of a hotel. They are currently going over CCTV from the hotel to see the level he fell from and if they can determine the exact cause of death.

Further details are unavailable at this time.

People falling from balconies in Thailand, and Pattaya, are not uncommon. Last January, a 58 year old Australian man died after falling from the 8th floor of his Condo.

  1. “They are currently going over CCTV from the hotel to see the level he fell from and if they can determine the exact cause of death.”

    Good idea as he could have been shot then thrown over the rail and falling five stories.

  2. While calculating a life span, if you are through your twenties, add another six years to your lifespan.
    The twenties for western males is a dangerous time. They die in road accidents, overdose on drugs, and fall off balconies. I have many friends in my lifetime did not make it through their twenties.
    I used to just stay home and look at my stamp collection, go to bed at nine with cocoa and a digestive biscuit, sad, but I am still alive.

  3. Amazing how the poor lad’s body is (what appears from the photo) about 20 feet away from the hotel entrance, obviously the balcony extends outwards the same distance!

    I hate being sarcastic due to the awful nature of this tragedy, but come on Thailand police and reporters please get real!!!

  4. I cannot believe how insensitive and immature some comments are. Somebody’s son just passed away. Imagine the pain the parents are suffering at the moment. Have some decency, people.

  5. @Simon Jeffrey – You’re a fucking bitch for this comment, ballsy of you to say that shit behind a screen. You wouldn’t be so much of a clown if that happened to someone in your family

  6. @Simon – There’s stories all the time on the news of people falling off balconies in Thailand. Don’t know where you got 2 in 6 months, but you Issan John are the king of stats so you must know. We are all just peasants in front of you and your all encompassing knowledge of all things.
