An 88 year old American man died last night after he fell from his eighth floor condominium in Pattaya. Police say they suspect the incident was suicide, but are still investigating.

A security guard patrolling the area found the man’s body on the ground outside his condominium on Soi Buakhao around 10pm last night and alerted Pattaya City Police. Officers found a note which included his room number. They searched the room and found the man’s passport.

If you or someone you know is feeling depressed or suicidal, contact the Samaritans of Thailand at 02-713-6793.
