Pattaya, November 28, 2011 [PDN] Pol. Lt. Col. Veeravuth Meelai, Pattaya police station, Chonburi was notified about a “jumper”, a young woman who leaped off a balcony at Vogue Hotel Pattaya, located in Soi Leng Kee, Third Pattaya road, Central Pattaya, Moo 9, Banglamung, Chonburi province.
At the scene of the accident the police found the injured 22-year-old Thai woman named Ms. Ratchanu Taweerat laying unconscious on the grass with blood from her mouth and nose.
Mr. David John age 25, her British boy friend in a state of shock was sitting beside her including hotel staff plus curious local and international onlookers.
The rescue team provided first aid accordingly and the injured woman was sent to Pattaya Memorial Hospital.
Upon investigation Mr. David, the boy friend of the injured said that he and his girl friend stayed in room 2710 on the 7th floor.
Before the jump they went to a pub in Walking Street, South Pattaya. Returned to the hotel and started to quarrel, but no fighting, he said. Thereafter his girl friend went out on the balcony and jumped off. He rushed down and asked the hotel staff for help.
The witnesses on the opposite side of the hotel saw the moment Ms. Ratchanu jumped off, hit a branch of a coconut tree before hitting ground. This probably saved her life.
Mr. David said that he didn’t beat up his girl friend and that she jumped off by her self. They inspected his body but no traces of fighting we’re found. The hotel room was also inspected but nothing unusual was discovered.
Mr. David has been detained and is to be further investigated by the police. More witnesses will also be interviewed when Ms. Ratchanu regains consciousness the police will find out why she jumped off the balcony.
