PHUKET: A Swiss man fell to his death from the third-floor balcony of his home on a Patong hillside this morning.
The man was living in a rented home on Phisit Gorani Rd, Soi 1 in Patong, not far from Suwankhiriwong Temple, at the time of his death.
The man’s live-in Thai girlfriend, a woman of about 30 years old who asked to be identified only as “Piyamas”, said the fall happened at about 9am today.
“We were having a chat as I was cooking in the kitchen, then he walked over to the balcony. Suddenly he went quiet, then I heard a scream. I ran out to the balcony and saw him lying on the ground below, then I rushed down to where he fell and cradled his head on my lap,” she said.
