A German man has been saved after trying to jump from a room in South Pattaya yesterday afternoon.
The Pattaya City Police was notified of the incident at 12:30PM yesterday. Police, emergency responders and The Pattaya News arrived at the scene.
The German man, aged 60 years old, was sitting on the balcony of a room on the second floor of a local apartment complex, yelling and screaming and causing a public disturbance. Rescue workers and police opened negotiations with the man trying to get him to come down of his own will.
He had finally been saved after many minutes of negotiations by a rescue worker with quick reflexes who pulled the man to safety before taken to the Pattaya City Police Station. See the video here:
Police reported that the German man was named Mr Nolte Uwe. At this stage they believed that Mr. Uwe had financial problems and acted out of desperation. He was arrested and detained after the incident as he was uncooperative with Pattaya police and for his own safety and medical evaluation as well as a review of his Visa status.
