An air conditioner repairman working in Pattaya is in the hospital after plummeting off a roof. He was reportedly refilling refrigerant liquid in an air conditioner at the time.

Around 1pm, emergency responders from Sawang Boriboon were alerted of the incident. 47 year old Panuwat Chuapkrasong broke his arm in the fall and injured his mouth and legs. He was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital.

A coworker, who wished to remain anonymous, told Pattaya News that Panuwat was standing on a roof about 2 metres off the ground when he fell. A neighbour says they heard a “shattering” sound followed by screams. They then called rescue workers to assist the injured man.
