A 40-year-old South Korean national apparently plunged to his death by accident from his 37th-floor room at a condominium on Wongamat Beach in North Pattaya at around 3 a.m. early Wednesday morning.
It appears that the victim had been drunk at the time of his death and that suicide or murder can be ruled out.
According to reports, the victim had just moved into the condominium a week earlier. It appears he worked for the Samsung Group and was in Pattaya on business.
The foreigner’s body was found by condominium staff near the communal swimming pool at around 3 a.m. Staff told police officers that the Korean businessman had returned to his room late on Tuesday night and “appeared to be intoxicated,” indicating that the tragic fall was an accident.
