Kadir Kemal Ozan Kayan

A Turkish man fell to his death from the balcony of a Bangkok hotel in the early hours of Tuesday morning in what police are calling an accident.

Emergency officials and police found 31-year-old Kadir Kemal Ozan Kayan lifeless body just before 01:00. He had apparently fallen from the balcony of his room on the fifth floor at the Urbana Langsuan: a 36-storey hotel on Langsuan Rd in Lumpini subdistrict.

The deceased was wearing only boxer shorts. An emergency physician at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital confirmed that both the victim’s legs had been severely fractured and he had a smashed nose. His wife, also a Turkish national, was found cradling their infant and crying next to the body.

Investigating officer Pol Capt Nattapon Lodongbang of Lumpini Police Station said the man and his family arrived in Thailand on Sunday and checked into their room, 507 on the fifth floor. The victim reportedly went out drinking on Monday evening, returning to the hotel at about 22:00.

Pol Capt Nattapon said Mr Keyan had gone out on to the balcony while his wife was looking after their child and later apparently fell from it. Mrs Keyan told police that when she heard the sound of the impact, she went out to the balcony, saw that her husband had fallen and immediately called the authorities.

The investigation into the case is still ongoing, Pol Capt Nattapon said. “We’re still waiting for the autopsy results to see whether he was drunk when he fell, so I can’t say for certain yet.” Until evidence to the contrary is found, the death is being treated as an unfortunate accident.
