Woman rescued in flyover suicide bid

By The Nation




A woman, who apparently had a mental-health disorder, was rescued after she threatened to jump from a pedestrian bridge in front of the Criminal Court in Bangkok’s Chatuchak district on Thursday.


The Phaholyothin police were told that a woman was standing on the ledge of the bridge and threatening to jump.


Police and members the Poh Teck Tung Foundation found the 45-year-old woman standing outside the fence while holding the fence with both hands.


Col Chettha Sawangsuk, commander of Phaholyothin police, said the woman sounded confused, like she had a mental-health disorder. 


She claimed police planted drugs on her and raised a false drugs charge.


Police closed the lane below and spent about half an hour trying to convince her to climb back. 


A policeman and rescuer eventually grabbed her.


Chettha said she did not face any drug charges but she had faced three theft charges in 2013. 


She was sent to a hospital to be evaluated by a psychiatrist before police decided whether to press charges.
