BANGKOK:-- A teenager from Northern Ireland has died after falling from the fifth floor of a condominium in Samut Prakan.

Jules Farrelly, 17, succumbed to his injuries on Friday after falling from the balcony of the apartment building on Sukhumvit Soi 109 in Samut Prakan, reported Thairath.

Police Capt Nakrin Jambanin from Samrong Nuea Police Station along with rescue workers from the Poh Tek Tung rescue foundation answered an emergency call on Wednesday that a young foreign man had suffered serious injuries after falling from a balcony.

When they attended they found Mr Farrelly unconscious and with life threatening injuries.

He was rushed to the intensive care unit of Vibharam Chaiphrakarn Hospital but despite the efforts of doctors died from his injuries 48 hours later.

As part of their investigations into the incident, police interviewed the owner of the condominium, Mr Chakon, 40, who said that Mr Farrelly lived there with another male and female who were also Irish.

On the day of the incident, the condominium owner told police that he had received complaints from other tenants regarding the noise coming Mr Farrelly’s room.

When Mr Chakon went to investigate he said he was stopped by one of the condominium security guards who told him a foreigner had fallen from his balcony. Mr Chakon and the security guard then ran outside which is where they found Mr Farrelly. They then contacted the police.

When officers searched Mr Farrelly’s room they found a white powder, believed to ketamine, and a packet of painkillers, six of which had already been used.

Pol Capt Nakrin added that CCTV footage revealed that Mr Farrelly had been behaving strangely prior to him jumping from the balcony.

Officers concluded that the cocktail of ketamine and painkillers had caused Mr Farrelly to hallucinate or believe he was being chased by someone which is why he jumped from the balcony.

There was no further mention of the whereabouts of Mr Farrelly’s roommates or if they were spoken to during the investigation.

What kind of parents would let a 17 year old go to Bangkok unsupervised?

How do you know they let him, and if in fact they did, how do you know he was unsupervised? Better stay off your balcony, you have a tendency to jump to conclusions.

Of course he fell, Why would we think any differently over here in the Land of Skydiving.

The Rtp hav already concluded within minutes that it woz the ketamine an painkillers that made him hallucinate or think he woz being chased by someone.

So murder ruled out then already. Don't want to upset the tourist minister now do we. ???

Stupid, ignorant, and irresponsible ones.

Perhaps ignorant of their son's travel plans.

And what's your theory on where a 17 year old got the money to go to Bangkok and do drugs if not from his parents? Saved it from his wages perhaps? And yeah, given that he ended up as a splat on the pavement, I'd say it was safe to say he was unsupervised.

17 is the age to experiment your limits with alcohol and most of us remember violent room spinning and physically holding on to the bed. Im guessing has was blind drunk and fooling around on the balcony and went over
