A foreign man, who set fire to a house he was living in with his Thai wife, tried to jump off a cliff in Rawai this morning.

Firefighters were notified about the incident at a house in Rawai earlier today.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, the house was already well ablaze. It took half an hour to put out the fire. Furniture, walls and ceilings inside the house were extensively damaged.

Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos says, “the foreign man living in the house with his Thai wife set the house on fire this morning. After that he headed to the windmill viewpoint overlooking Yanui Beach on his motorbike.”

“The foreign man attempted to jump off the cliff but luckily a security saw him and was able to stop him. He was given a first aid by rescue workers before being taken to the Chalong Police Station.”
