Liang Fang

Police are trying to determine whether the death of a Chinese tourist who fell from a Bangkok hotel Thursday morning has been suicide or the result of an accident, Daily News reported today.

The 46-year-old Chinese tourist Ms Liang Fang was found dead in a pool of blood on a concrete floor nex to the hotel’s car park. Pol Col Bpatinawit Senabplaeng, an investigator from Huay Khwang Police Station who had been assigned to the case, and rescue workers from Poh Teck Tung Foundation arrived at around 6:00 early Thursday morning at a hotel whose name was withheld by the police to inspected the scene.

Paramedics diagnosed several fractures, including a broken neck which indicated the woman had fallen from a great height. She was wearing a white shirt and shorts. Next to her body, police found a pair of orange flip-flops presumably belonging to the victim, Pol Col Bpatinawit told the media.

Police interviewed hotel employees and guests to gather more information about the tragic incident. They learned that Mrs Liang had been on a group tour that had checked into the hotel in Bangkok’s Huang Khwang district the previous night. Police presume she fell from the room no. 811 on the 8th floor where she had been staying along with her husband.

Investigators also questioned the husband of the deceased. He told police his wife had been suffering from a neurosis for several years whose symptoms intensified during her stay. He expressed his suspicion that her condition worsened overnight to the point where she impulsively decided to end her life by jumping from the 8th floor of the hotel building.

They both went to bed the night before the incident. However, when the husband woke up at around 6:00 early Thursday morning, he was not able to locate his wife, prompting him and other hotel employees to search the hotel. They quickly found her body lying dead on a concrete path connecting the building to the car spot.

Huay Khwang Police Station have already informed the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok about the death and said they are assisting the victim’s family in transporting the body Mrs Liang’s body back to her native China. A thorough examination of the body was scheduled at a local government hospital.
