A South Korean tourist quarrelled with his girlfriend before he fell to his death down the freight elevator shaft of a Bangkok condominium early Monday morning.



Pol Captain Palakorn Thanormphan was alerted to the incident at the 20-storey S Building of the Aspire Condo on Soi Sukhumvit 48 and he rushed to the scene with medics to find the naked body of Doo Ho Lee, 33, at the bottom of the lift shaft. He fell from the eighth floor.

Palakorn said the man and his South Korean girlfriend visited his compatriot friend at the condominium on Sunday.

Palakorn said the man returned to the condominium late Sunday night and was drunk and he had a quarrel with his girlfriend.

Following the dispute, the man damaged the toilet and left the condo naked before he used a fire extinguisher to knock open the door of the freight elevator on the eighth floor and fell to his death.
