Thai Suicides May Be Linked to Lockdown Stress

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

MS. Surinee Dokkaew, 77, was found dead about 6am on the ground at the base of the 15-storey Bangkok condominium building.

Pol Maj Than Burnachai, investigation chief at Bang Khen police station said she was neatly dressed in a light blue shirt and black trousers. Police went to the room she was staying in on the 10th floor, and found a plastic chair near the window.

Relatives told police she had no husband and stayed alone at her house. A worried granddaughter took her in at her Bangkok condominium room to keep her free of the coronavirus disease.
On Thursday morning, the granddaughter went out, leaving the woman alone in the room. A tenant in a building opposite saw the elderly woman sitting on the edge of the open window, swinging her legs.

She then fell to her death, Thai media reported. Police said it appeared the woman committed suicide, possibly because she was stressed by events. They were questioning relatives to find out more.
