PHUKET: Police are investigating the death of a 33-year-old Australian man who was found dead at a Patong hotel early this morning after a suspected fall while trying to scale the hotel from the outside trying to get into his room.

 

 

 

Officers were called to the C&N Hotel on Rat-U-Thit 200 Pi Rd at about 2:15am, reported Lt Col Patiwat Yodkwan of the Patong Police.

By the time police had arrived, rescue workers had already rushed the man to Patong Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Col Patiwat noted in his report.

What is with Thailand that so many people, mostly tourists, dying by falling off balconies and other lofty structures? is this some sort of a curse or pure bad luck?...

Par for the course...

 

There was one not long ago, where someone had been taken to hospital, treated and released before police even got there 🙂

Same happened in our city, but the guy didn't die. He forgot his key, nobody was around to open the door for him in the early morning hours.

 

  He was very intoxicated, lost control and fell a few floors. He was very lucky that nothing bad happened to him.

Aussies and brits in the lead of the premeditated suicide race and the most stupid way to fall down series. Who will win?
