A Thai man jumped from the 17th floor of a Bangkok condo after seriously attacking his eight months pregnant wife. His mother said she thought he had argued with his wife over stock market losses reported Daily News
Jirawat Phromcharoen, 36, a launderette owner and stock trader from Huay Kwang, was found in a flower bed next to the fifth floor swimming pool of the twenty storey The Leaf condominium in Pattanakarn Road, Suan Luang, Bangkok. Klong Tan police found him in his red pajamas dead from multiple injuries.
In a room on the 17th floor they found signs of a struggle with a lot of blood and broken glass. They were told by condo security that the victim’s wife had already been taken to hospital with multiple head wounds.
Ubon Srichai, 39, was recovering in nearby Bangkok Hospital where she was listed as “out of danger”.
Security told police that the couple had often argued and on Wednesday night a serious argument and fight was heard. They went to the room and as they were taking the wife to hospital Jirawat jumped to his death “probably believing that his wife was going to die.”
Jirawat’s mother told police later that her son was being treated by doctors for stress after he had lost money on the stock market. His wife had told him to stop trading and this was what probably led to the argument, she said.
Police are waiting for the wife to recover sufficiently before proceeding with their enquiries.
