Unnamed Japanese

An elderly Japanese man died after falling from a car park in a 50-storey building in Sathon on Saturday morning.

The lifeless body of a Japanese man lay in the driveway leading to the multi-storey car park at the United Center on Silom Road (Bang Rak subdistrict) when officers from Thung Maha Mek Police Station arrived on the scene. The man, whose identity is yet to be confirmed, had plummeted from the tenth floor between 8:30 and 9:00 on Saturday morning.

The unidentified male suffered fractures in both arms and legs and extensive injuries to his skull. “We believe the man was in his 60’s,” Pol Capt Apichai Srisang said, adding that no identification documents had been found at the scene. “All we know is that he is likely to be a Japanese national.”

As volunteers from the Poh Tek Tung Rescue Foundation cleaned up the scene, Pol Capt Apichai told reporters that the reason for his death had not yet been established, but it was thought that the deceased had gone to the car park with the express intention of committing suicide.
