Interesting. Almost all comments here accept/assume suicide. Nobody knows for sure. Maybe he leaned on a railing and fell over. Maybe he parked his butt on it and ..... . Maybe he suffered a seizure or blackout before falling.

"Nobody knows for sure"?

Maybe the quoted witness was just making it up, eh?...

"A vendor near the site on the sixth floor said she noticed a foreigner trying to climb over the barrier, but had let go by the time she got to him".

Another one. Further proof of what living here can do to you. Thailand can destroy you, mentally, physically and financially. All we can ask is, did he fall or was he pushed? There must have been witnesses in a store like that. Horrible way to go, seeing the ground rushing towards you must seem like an eternity, like the apparent slow motion experienced in a car crash... then splat! RIP.

Can't say the same for the 66 killed on the roads every day. More chance of being killed driving/riding home from the mall by a long shot.

It's 80 per day.

I am not sure they are weak as it must take a lot of guts to jump.  Sick/depressed though most certainly.

Headline reads jumped police say fell?

He most certainly fell to his death. Perhaps he jumped over the barrier? Or once over the barrier he jumped into the emptiness? But in either case it was the fall and associated sudden stop, aka impact, that lead to his demise. I have a fear of concrete or concrete like hard surfaces, so jumping to my death is out the question for me, unless I was to jump into water, and since I've always been a great swimmer, this wouldn't be a option for me either. I am curious about the charcoal method one poster referred to. But the idea of eating a bunch of charcoal isn't very appealing to begin with then when some unlucky bloke finds me, he'll see the black charcoal crumbs around my mouth and figure I ate chocolate cake until I died. Not the legacy, I , a former bulimic and compulsive fitness  guru want to leave behind.

I'm unclear what kind of respect for the body is required in the event of a very public suicide. Would respect include limiting speculation and reserving judgments without fact on a public forum? 


The suicide is one thing (if it was a suicide) and a tragic on its own.

But it does not invite automatically the pictorial satisfaction of bystanders - honestly I wonder what they do with these pictures? Hollering about how stupid people are or sharing it with the kids on social media?

The poor chap obviously had his reasons. We all have our limits, I hope you never find yours.
