A 57-year-old British man has died after falling from a balcony on the fifteenth floor of the Lanna 3 Condo in Chang Phuak.
The man, identified as Phil Edward Miller Hardwicke landed next to a third-floor swimming pool, much to the horror of tourists who were using the pool at the time.
It’s not known if the death was suicide or accidental, with Thairath reporting that the deceased may have had an issue attempting to exit his room and hence was trying to climb onto another balcony. Suicide is mostly suspected, however, as a diary found in his room indicated that he was experiencing family problems.
Mr. Hardwicke’s body has been taken to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital and the British Consul in Chiang Mai has been informed of the death.
