Tourists and locals reeled in horror as a man fell from the twelfth floor killing himself in a busy downtown Bangkok hotel lobby on Wednesday.
The man was only named as Monkhon, aged 67, and is believed to be a well known owner of a night club in the Rachada area of Bangkok, Daily News reports.
The luxury hotel in Huay Kwang was not named. Hotel staff rushed to cover the shattered body with a sheet as patrons of the hotel looked on aghast.
He was wearing a white polo shirt and sports trousers but no shoes. He was initially believed be of Chinese origin.
Witnesses said that the man arrived by taxi but did not check into the hotel, instead going up in the lift to the 12th floor before jumping.
Huay Kwang police said there was no evidence at this stage to suggest why the man might have jumped. Investigations are continuing.
