Thai student paralysed in shocking mall car park plunge: Police probe underway

A Thai high school student, in her third year at a prominent school, was paralysed after she plunged from the fourth floor of a shopping mall car park. The shocking moment was captured by a passing vendor’s dashcam.

Police are now urgently investigating the cause. At 9am today, Police Lieutenant Kaweewut Bunruang, the duty officer of Rayong City Police, was informed of a fall from the fourth floor of a car park in a shopping centre in Tha Pradu, Rayong. He coordinated with emergency medical staff from Rayong Hospital and the Sa Wang Prokun Rescue Unit to inspect the scene.

Upon arrival, they found a female student in a PE uniform, a pink shirt with warm-up pants, lying still. Preliminary examination revealed that she was conscious but had sustained serious injuries, including a broken left arm and hip, and was paralyzed.

First aid was administered before she was taken to Rayong Hospital for further treatment. The injured party was identified as Miss A (pseudonym), a third-year student at a well-known school. An initial investigation revealed that she had fallen from the fourth-floor car park, an open upper level. Two fresh saliva stains were found, along with marks on the iron railings from where she fell. However, no other evidence or CCTV cameras were found on that floor, which is often frequented by teenagers hanging out.
