Thai media reported that a mystery foreign man was threatening to jump from the tenth floor of a building under construction behind Big C in Ratchadamri Road yesterday. 

 

Sanook reported that large crowds had gathered and a video showed people filming. 

 

The media said traffic was being affected during the drama that began around 3pm and was continuing at 4.30pm.

An airbag had been laid down on the ground by firemen in case he jumped as the authorities tried to talk him round. 

 

Both Sanook and Daily News left readers hanging without saying what eventually happened. 

 

Both news sources said they suspected that the man was a foreigner. 

 

More about this as we hear of it.

Reminds me of an old joke

 

Guy goes in to a Bangkok bar at 10 pm

 

Sits with a bar girl watching the 10 o'clock news showing a guy on the 40th floor ledge of the Baiyoke tower threatening to jump.

 

Guy says  "he's going to Jump"

 

Bar girl says "Naa he wont jump".

 

Guy says "bet you 1000 baht he jumps".

 

Bar girl says "OK it’s a bet"

 

2 minutes later the guy does a swan dive from the 40th floor.

 

Bar girl hands over 1000 baht

 

Guy says " Nah I cant take your money I already saw that on the 6 o'clock news.

 

Bar girl says  " Well so did I but I never thought he would do it again "

You actually reach maximum velocity after 10 meters. 

5, 10 or 20 storage will make no difference. 

By airbag they mean a rescue airbag they are huge and made so air will pressed out on impact, so it's two meters of airbag slowing down on impact.

I thought it was ten seconds not ten meters?

In the end they found out it was a Thai woman not a westerner and she didn't jump. If it's the same case my missus was talking about yesterday that is
