Sattahip –

A young foreign male teenager has been pronounced dead after falling from the fourteenth floor of a condominium in Sattahip this morning (October 26th).

The Na Jomtien Police were notified of the incident at a condominium/hotel in Soi Na Jomtien 18. The name of the condo has been withheld pending further investigation.

Police and emergency responders, arrived at the building in question to find the body of the foreign teenage male aged 17 lying on the ground. His name was withheld due to being a juvenile. His mother, identified only as Mrs.Yashica, 52, also a foreign national, was found crying near his body. Mixed reports named the nationality of the two as either Irish or British.

Yashica told police, “My son and I lived on the 14th floor of this building. This morning I didn’t see him in the room and panicked. I was frantically searching for him until, tragically, I saw him lying on the ground below the condo and called authorities for assistance.”

Police said no sign of a struggle or altercation was found on the teenager’s body.

His body was taken to the Institute of Forensic Medicine Police at the Police Hospital in Bangkok to determine the exact cause of death.
