An unidentified Western male of unknown nationality fell to his death Tuesday evening from the the View Talay Pattaya Beach Condo 6 in Central Pattaya. While an accident or foul play have not been ruled out it seems likely that the white-skinned foreigner simply joined the Pattaya skydiver club and deliberately jumped from an upper floor of the high-rise building.
The Caucasian man’s body was reportedly found in a “severely mangled condition” on the ground floor of the condo at around 9.30 p.m. He carried no ID card on him but was described by police as approx. 30-35 years of age and 165-170 centimetres tall, with a “dragon tattoo” on his right arm and shoulder.
A wallet police found in the foreigner’s pockets contained only 70 Baht but provided no clues as to the identity or nationality of the victim.
Witnesses reportedly saw the foreigner buy a bottle of beer at a shop on the ground floor of the condominium no more than 10 minutes before his body was found by condo staff. It remains unclear whether or not the foreigner was a resident at the condominium and from which floor he plunged to his death.
