Why would some one jump INSIDE a mall?

Yes, but selfish that.

RIP to the poor soul. But on the other hand I really do not think that its right or good for falangs to end their life by jumping from buildings or inside malls as they endanger the lives of local thais and other Asian tourists (rated as cheap tourist by falangs but at least they are buying and spending and not jumping in these malls.) the government should have new rules about long term stay and short term falang tourist and expats in this country. Maybe when these 'rich and high spending falangs 'are entering shopping malls and also buildings, they have to show ids and also leave a refundable deposit in case the leave a mess and also may sure that they have additional insurance in case they cause injury or death to others.

Wondering about that too, just so harsh to do to everyone in there.
Perhaps to make a statement? Like a warning to other farangs for Pattaya. Might sound crazy but if all the drama relates, he could blame that.

It's 80 per day.

I can show several reports of around 60 a day, so not sure where you get your figures, but it's totally irrelevant to the point I was making.

Do you honestly believe that someone bent on suicide is really thinking clearly?

Yeah, but it is so frequent here.

Do you have statistics that it's higher than anywhere else?

Yeah well..from the man who is easily convinced by phantom posters on TVF-re Aussie cigarettes..

It's 80 per day unless you play Dungeons and Dragons in your head.The Thai authorities do..but then the intellectual life of "farangs" in Thailand is somewhat "iffy",neh?

What's despicable?

 

I see mall security securing the area after the body has been covered. With the possible assistance of mall staff, they are erecting a totally enclosed sala to completely screen the body from onlookers. A small group of rubberneckers are maybe 20-30 meters away and a couple of people that are blissfully unaware of what has just happened are using the nearby escalator.

is it possible to compare the suicide rate with other "sin cities"? i've got the impression it's higher in pattaya at least among farangs.

I recall a favorite jumpers spot was from the rooftop at Mike's Department Store or Mall. There is (or was) a public access swimming pool up there so access was very easy. Maybe they closed that off (or had security turn away sad old blokes without a towel) and Central has come up as the next easiest option?

They should design nets to prevent this as far as possible, much better to do that than become the go to suicide building for depressed and suicidal foreigners.

I’m accustomed to daft ideas on Thai Visa, but this one deserves a prize.

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.

There was a report of him letting go of someone's hand and climbing over the rail.
