A Canadian tourist leapt from a fifth floor balcony at a hotel in the popular backpacker district Thursday morning but walked away with minor injuries, police said.

canadian-survives-balcony-fallDale Patrick Weinmeyer, 36, appeared intoxicated when he jumped, according to Pitak Sitthikul, chief of the police station with jurisdiction over Khaosan Road, where D&D Inn is located.

“He could talk [to rescue workers]. His injuries weren’t serious,” Col. Pitak of Chanasongkram Police Station said. “He looked like he was intoxicated.”

Weinmeyer jumped from a balcony on the fifth floor during a heated argument with his wife at around 10:30am, according to police. The tourist landed in the hotel’s garden, which softened the impact.
