A Thai man was found dead after police believe he was very drunk and attempting to vomit down a garbage chute on the 7th floor of a Chon Buri apartment complex and fell into it to his death. The accident took place this week in Mueang Chon Buri Nong Maidang district and the Don Hualor Police received notification of the incident.

The man was only identified as a 31 year old man named Udomrat, and the apartment complex with the garbage chute was not named. Emergency responders arrived to the apartment building to find the man lying dead on the ground nearby the garbage chute.

The dead man was found at the bottom of the chute, but his shoes, along with some vomit, were found near the garbage chute 7 stories above. The caretaker of the apartment complex confirmed that the man lived on the 7th floor of the building.

Police are conducting a full investigation in order to determine the exact cause of death, but they reported that they have not found any sign of a struggle or altercation and don’t suspect any foul play so far. CCTV footage is reported to have confirmed that the man seemed to be heavily intoxicated before the accident.

It is believed that the man was so drunk that he was attempting to throw up down the garbage shoot and lost his balance, plummeting 7 stories to the ground below.

Pattaya seems to have an unusual amount of people falling to their deaths from aparments and condos. Just last week a foreign teenager fell 14 floors to his death.
