88-Year-Old German Man Falls to Death from Parking Building at Pattaya Mall

Pattaya –

An 88-year-old German man fell to his death from a parking building at a department store in Pattaya.

The Pattaya City Police were notified of the incident at a department store on Central Pattaya Road in Nongprue on Friday afternoon around 4:30 P.M (April 28th).

Police, emergency responders, and the Pattaya News arrived at the four storey building to find the body of an 88-year-old male German lying on the ground. (The Pattaya News is withholding his name pending embassy and family notification).

The German man had a pink Thai ID card and was an ex-pat, not a tourist. A hat and sandals were found on the fourth floor of the parking garage, seemingly left by the man.

A technician from the department store, Mr. Warachai Tapyai, 40, told police that no one directly saw the incident. He was told by a third party that someone had fallen down from the building.

The Pattaya City Police are checking CCTV footage. However, at this stage police believed that the German man might have jumped from the building.
