The incident was reported to Pattaya police at 7:30 PM on Monday, November 6th. The police coordinated with Sawang Boriboon rescue workers before rushing to the scene at an unnamed apartment in Soi Chaloem Phrakiat 9, Nongprue sub-district, Banglamung district, Chonburi province.

There, authorities discovered a stranded Russian male, identified as 37-year-old Igor Nechitailo, on the canopy roof of the second floor. It was reported that the tourist had accidentally fallen from his room on the third floor. Fortunately, the canopy roof prevented him from falling further, potentially saving him from more serious injuries.

According to rescue workers, Mr. Igor only sustained moderate injuries from the accident. However, Pattaya police stated that he was heavily intoxicated, with the smell of alcohol emanating from him. Rescue workers had to use a ladder truck to bring him down before transporting him to a nearby hospital.

A 45-year-old witness named Phakakrong stated that she heard a loud noise of something colliding with the canopy. She promptly notified the police upon realizing it was a person.

Igor remained at a local hospital recovering and sobering up as of press time.
