A 46 year old Norwegian fell from a 6th floor apartment balcony at a South Pattaya Condominium on Wednesday Afternoon, Pattaya One News reported.
The incident has been recorded as a suicide and resulted in the death of Mr. Haakon Halvorsen aged 46 at the Center Condotel located off the South Pattaya Road.
The victim fell onto the car park at the rear of the building and his identity was confirmed by Khun Chonchanok aged 25, his girlfriend of 1 ½ months who was called to the scene by friends.
She revealed to Police that Mr. Halvorsen had asked her to leave him for a time as he was experiencing serious problems in Norway and he wanted to be alone. For the last 4-5 days he had been in a deep depression. Although he was also experiencing poor health, Khun Chonchanok is convinced this was not the reason for the apparent suicide.
The Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok are aware of the case and are helping Police to determine a motive for the apparent suicide.
