Japanese man falls 12 floors to his death

PATTAYA: -- Taraba Yashitchi, 35, plummeted 12 floors from a Na Jomtien hotel balcony on Monday afternoon, February 28. He suffered multiple bone fractures and head injuries, and eventually succumbed to his injuries at Bangkok Pattaya Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

Yashitchi was in Thailand to aid with tsunami relief efforts.

Sattahip police initially surmise that the man had tried to commit suicide. A police spokesman said that police would reveal the results of their investigation later, once they had concluded the case.

It is possible the Japanese man met a girl and had lots of money and she told her boyfriend (who was Thai, and a drinker, gambler and druggie) and he threw him over the balcony after robbing him blind and getting his PIN numbers.

This 'fall to death' happens every week, it is obvious it is murder. I was at Sirikit, Sattahip hospital a few days ago, there was a dull thud, a Thai woman jumped?from the fourth floor....DEBT..DEAD

Take care, count your blessings, one by one, prepare for the unexpected...

I'm amazed that he was still alive after falling 12 floors ! Obviously he didn't last long after that.

There does seem to be an unusually high occurence of balcony diving in Thailand, especially Pattaya. Does this happen (alot) in Phuket, Chang Mai, Bangkok ?

Surveillance cameras might help, but not every hotel is going to pay to install/monitor these.

Surveillance Cameras will not catch them on the way down, better to fit bouncy castle floors all around apartments or hotels.....

Falling from high storey balconeys seems to be a Pattaya disease. Can't remember the last time it happened to a foreigner in Phuket. Last one I heard about was a Thai katoey that found out that he/she was HIV+.

Your right that the cameras won't prevent them from "diving", but it might help catch the "coaches" that are encouraging the divers.

As long as it's only the odd farang now and then, nothing much will be done about it any ways.

Just think twice when the teerak you've known for an hour suggests you step out on the balcony to look at the stars.......
