Pattaya, the 11th of March 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 2:30am, police Captain Pratiphat Phoomlee (Dongtan Police Investigator) was notified that a foreign man had been severely injured after falling from a 4-storey shop house in Soi Welcome Hotel off Jomtien Beach Road, Jomtien. Local officers and rescue personnel from the Sawang Boriboon Foundation rushed to the scene to investigate and render assistance.

Arriving at the incident, officers discovered the unconscious body of Canadian national, Mr. Nicholas Patrick Roenisch [25] lying on the pavement below the shop house balconies. Mr. Roenisch had suffered a fractured skull in the fall and was bleeding profusely. Medical examination revealed that he was still alive, as such rescue personnel transported him immediately to the Bangkok-Pattaya Hospital.

Investigation at the scene of the incident revealed that Mr. Roenisch had been living in room 43 on the 4th floor of the unnamed shop house.

The Karmic Perils Of Following Suit

With the Thai penchant for emulating their heroes, especially movie super stars, one has to be careful not to instil ideas in impressionable minds. Apparently, the Japanese have a suicide syndrome which many follow unthinkingly, due to inordinate academic or business pressure. Though the same pressures could hardly be claimed for the majority of Thais, nevertheless, they do like to be copyists. One often sees this among lovelorn bar girls who, when jilted, readily slit their wrists.
