Fear of girlfriend leads to death plunge

BANGKOK: A man fell to his death November 15 as he tried to lower himself onto the balcony of his fifth floor flat – rather than go in through the front door and meet his angry girlfriend.

The body of 29-year-old Surasak Kasan was found lying on the ground under the balcony of his apartment in Din Daeng. He had some television aerial cable wrapped around his leg. A coat-hanger was found next to his body.

Investigating Officer Thaywa Bunchariang from Din Daeng Police said he believes Mr Surasak was trying to lower himself from the flat’s roof terrace onto his balcony by sliding down the TV cable because he did not dare knock at the front door to wake his girlfriend up. The TV cable, however, was unable to take his weight.

Mr Surasak’s girlfriend, 21-year-old Parita Thongsuk, said that after getting home from work around 2:30am on the night of the incident she heard a loud bang outside the window. When she looked down, she saw the body of her boyfriend.

Miss Parita said Mr Surasak was ashamed as he had stolen her mobile phone and sold it. This was not the first time he had done it – a number of her phones had met the same fate, she said.

After doing something bad Mr Surasak usually didn’t dare show his face for a while and would do anything to avoid her, even risking a five-storey fall.
