Finnish Man Falls to Death at Bangkok Airport

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.

A Finnish man died after he fell from the sixth floor of the passenger terminal at Suvarnabhumi airport on Friday night.

The tourist was found lying face-up with broken legs and multiple fractures on the fourth floor in the outbound passenger Zone F in front of a Thai Airways International ticket booth when tourist police arrived after being alerted at around 9.30pm.

The man, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives, was still breathing when medical staff gave him first aid. He was rushed to Samitivej Srinakharin Hospital before he was pronounced dead shortly afterward.

Police said the Finnish national had entered the country on Sept 8 with a 30-day visa before extending his stay until Nov 6. Before the fatal fall, the man was seen using a mobile phone in front of a ticket booth on the sixth floor. He reportedly jumped from the sixth floor and landed to the fourth floor.

Investigators have informed the Finnish embassy about the incident.

Thought they have these glass barriers to prevent that. Sad, but Finland in Winter must be really cold and dark.
