A 70 year old Austrian man has died after jumping from the 14th floor at a hotel in Patong today.

At 11am today Patong Police were notified that a foreign man had fallen from a hotel in Patong.

Police and emergency responders arrived to find the body of a man who was later identified as 70 year old Austrian man (The Thaiger has withheld his name). He landed on the roof of a kitchen in the back of the hotel. His body was taken to Patong Hospital.
