A 78-year-old Finnish expat who had been suffering from poor health and would often talk about suicide with friends apparently jumped to his death from a 10th-floor balcony at the Angket Condominium on Soi Wat Boon in Jomtien Tuesday morning.
The unnamed foreigner who had reportedly been living alone in a room on the fourth floor of the condominium for the past 10 years had left a suicide note addressed to a friend identified only as Willy. The short farewell letter in Swedish said that he would go up to the 10th floor of the condominium and jump to his death from there.
The elderly Finn had reportedly suffered from poor health and was taken to a local hospital just a day earlier after suffering head injuries from a fall in his room. Friends also told police that the deceased had occasionally talked about suicide.
