British Tourist Dies After Fall from Pattaya Hotel

Pattaya —

Pattaya police are investigating the death of a 69-year-old British man who fell from a fourth-floor hotel window on Sunday morning.

According to Pol. Lt. Anirut Jaro, the investigating officer at Pattaya Police Station, the incident occurred at around 2:00 AM on February 4th at a hotel located on Soi Buakhao in Central Pattaya.

The victim, a 69-year-old British national whose name was withheld pending family notification, was found on the hotel ground with severe injuries after falling from the fourth floor of the hotel. Despite immediate medical attention from rescue personnel, he succumbed to his wounds upon arrival at a local hospital.

Preliminary investigations conducted by Pattaya police revealed no signs of foul play inside the victim’s room. The exact cause of the incident remains undetermined.

The victim’s body remains at the hospital, where it will await further procedures and arrangements by his family, in accordance with their religious customs. His embassy will be contacted.

This incident happened almost the same exact time a Swedish tourist fell to his death from his hotel in a different part of Pattaya.
