Perhaps the charcoal method in private would have been a better choice if he had to do it.  RIP

What is the charcoal method?

How does the ambulance make money if the victim is dead and can't pay for the ambulance?

And thst is why we will need comprehensive health insurance for non O-A visas. Who pays for all the foreigners doung the Swan Song?

 

Seriously, with the value of the bht over the last 6-7 years I can understand the stress of many....

Common method in Thailand I think it's the fumes off the charcoal

Very rude and selfish. Kill yourself fine, but don't place it where it will subject others to see, especially children. Not cool!

The exchange rate is absolutely shocking right now, the lowest it's ever been in the past 6 years. But it wasn't bad about 2 years ago or so, that's when things went down and down.

 

Anyway, if someone has money issues, it's time to book a plane ticket back to their home country and stay there for good.

Poor guy. Fancy being that desperate. Unfortunately no consideration for the weaknesses of his messy exit. Money? Health? Loneliness? Lost love?  One book of Thai holiday memories I read described the departure Lounge of a Bangkok International Airport as the saddest place in the world. Perhaps he didn't want to there.  Depression drives people to desperate ends.

How do they know he was not pushed over the railing?  These news articles are very short on facts....

A simple statement of "witnesses observed" or "CCTV captured video of" would add some validity to the story

According to the Thai people I have discussed this with, there is an obvious possible answer to this question which may explain why he didn't have his passport on him. Possibly not in this case, but apparently many ambulance drivers or other First Responders just help themselves. Yet one more reason not to wander around with a real Rolex watch, a pocket full of cash and a neck full of gold in this land of smiles.

But perhaps he was just so distracted by his unhappiness that he was not thinking about such things. There but for the grace of.....etc.

Why not? I've seen many Thai people in Pattaya walking around flashing their gold on themselves. One Thai dude was with his wife and daughter eating at a restaurant at Central Festival with a big gold necklace, gold bracelet, gold ring and a gold watch. He wasn't scared of getting robbed.
