Before the fall, the 33-year-old compatriot and his companion quarreled. The hotel staff heard the conversation in raised voices outside their room on the 8th floor, which has a balcony overlooking the lobby. However, the staff could not make out what the couple was arguing about, because. did not understand Russian speech.
After that, at around 5:00 pm, according to eyewitnesses, the man jumped from a balcony and landed in a crowded lobby, shocking dozens of employees and tourists. Immediately after the incident, the girl fled the scene on the fire escape, now the police are looking for her. In addition, law enforcement officers intend to study the recordings from CCTV cameras in order to get a clearer picture of the incident.

The name of the hotel has not been released pending investigation by Pattaya police, but The Thaiger has information that the hotel is located on Pratamnak Soi 5.
