A 30-year-old Indian man fell to his death while apparently trying to climb into his rented room on the nine-floor of a condominium building in Bangkok after forgetting the room key, police said.
Deepak Jebakuma, 30, fell while trying to climb in from the fire exit window of Zenith Place condominium on Sukhumvit Soi 71/1 in Vadhana district at around 1.30am.
Pol Captain Piyawit Thongdej, deputy inspector of Klongtan Police Station, quoted Bancha Hirannawakul, a security officer of the building, as saying that he heard a loud sound at 1.30am. He came out to check and found Jebakuma lying on the ground seriously injured. He died before rescuers arrived.
Bancha told police that the Indian man and his wife had asked for a spare key to their room at 9.45pm on Thursday night but he had refused to give it to them, and had told them to contact the building manager the following day.
Bancha said the couple and their son left on a motorcycle at 10pm and returned shortly after midnight.
A window of the fire exit stairway on the eighth floor was found open and police believe the man may have tried to climb through the window to reach the balcony of his room and fallen.
