Chonburi —

A 19-year-old Thai man fell from a 6th floor room in Chonburi and landed on a car. He survived the shocking incident with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Don Hua Lor Police Station received a report of a person falling from a building at the Top Place 5 within the Don Hua Lor sub-district of Mueang district, Chonburi province, overnight on Saturday, June 24th. They rushed to the scene for an inspection with the rescue team from the Thammarasami Manee Ratana Foundation.

At the incident scene, authorities discovered the victim, 19-year-old Mr. Jakarin Boonleart, lying unclothed with injuries to his body. He was found resting on the hood of a black Toyota Yaris sedan. The car’s windshield was shattered in the fall.

Attempts to communicate with Jakarin were unsuccessful. Subsequently, the rescue team administered first aid and transported him to Chonburi Hospital.

Police officers proceeded to the 6th floor room of the victim where there was no response from the occupant. Upon entering the room, they found a friend of the victim, Mr. Withawin Upathong, 19, who was exhibiting signs of intoxication. He claimed not to know how his friend fell.

Further inspection on the balcony revealed a pile of feces and a plate. The police will summon Jakarin and his roommate for questioning at the Don Hua Lor Police Station later after he recovers from his injuries to determine the cause of the incident.
