Father of balcony fall children: Mother has kept 2 million baht to herself

The father of the four children who fell from a balcony in Bangkok has told Thai media that he suspects his estranged wife has kept 2 million baht in donations to herself.

Marcel Borel told Amarin TV that the money has not been used to pay for the care of three of his children who remain in Phaet Panya Hospital.

He said he is using his own money derived from family in Switzerland and other donations and wants the children transferred to better rooms.

For his own part he said that he would open a bank account and provide full details of withdrawals in the interests of transparency.

He said that his wife had said that the money she has received would be used for the children’s education but the priority right now was their health care.

After visiting with Dima, 11, and Luka,10, he said that their condition was improving. His daughter had asked for an iPhone and his son for school books.

Seven year old Chanida remains in a coma but stable. When her father spoke to her Thai media said her pulse increased and tears appeared in her eyes.

Five year old Alex Borel died in the fall from the fourth floor balcony in Ramkhamhaeng Soi 34 two weeks ago.

He was cremated last week.

Marcel and his wife Chananrat are involved in a custody battle.

Marcel claims that his ex was angry with him after he tried to stop her taking drugs.

The case has received widespread public attention attracting donations to both the mother and father of the children.
