Belgian businessman jumps to death from Hua Hin hotel
http://www.nationmultimedia.com/news/br ... s/30311121

A Belgian real estate developer jumped to his death from the roof of a seven-storey hotel in Hua Hin on Saturday night, police said.

The man died despite authorities placing a large airbag on the ground as police attempted to negotiate with him. When he jumped from the roof of the Hisea Huahin Hotel he missed the airbag by about three metres.

He died later in Hua Hin Hospital.

Police were alerted at 8.30pm that the man appeared suicidal on the rooftop of the hotel. Tourist police and Hua Hin police rushed to the scene and tried to negotiate with the man to step back from the edge of the roof.

Police said the man had an argument with a woman who owned an accountancy firm on Soi Hua Hin 41. Police said he apparently had stabbed her with a bamboo stick, slightly injuring her, after the company refused to return his passport.

Police said the man had been involved in a real estate and a restaurant in Hua Hin for about a year.

In Pattaya [comment removed] at least in this case the question---'Did he jump or was he pushed' is answered.

^^ agreed but it's not only Pattaya it's also very common in BKK and Phuket where I believe they have their own designated flight paths.

This guy sadly missed the ground airbag by 3 metres. Must have been really tough for the rescue teams and those who tried to talk him down and finally failed to save him.

Maybe to lay some flowers.
It's more important to know the reasons, I didn't know him, but I guess he is another victim of this real estate business.

He wasn't a victim of a real estate business and, as far as I know he wasn't even involved in any real estate business, though he was having issues with a house he had purchased.

It was a cumulation of many personal issues in his life that led to him getting into the condition he was in. None of which couldn't have been resolved if he'd only reached out to somebody. A terrible, needless loss.

He was not involved in real estate business, but as I said he is the victim.
He bought a house worth several million Bahts and had problems with the real estate who sold him this house.
So he is a victim of dishonest people.

Let's face it you are jumping to a conclusion that fits in with your point of view. There was obviously several factors at play here. It seems a tragic and needless loss of life. My thoughts are with his family.
