Phanuphat Kittiphan (Inspector of Thonglor police station) was notified that there was a foreign man trying to jump off the tall building of Pech Tower apartment in Soi Ekkamai 23 so he rushed to inspect at scene together with 1 cable car and the police team.

At the incident was a 12-storied apartment and on the balcony of room no. 812 on the 8th floor, the officers found Mr. Martin Baker, aged 27, Australian nationality who was standing and talking to himself he was also throwing property off the balcony. He had also put many plastic boxes against the room’s door to block it.
The police put an air mattress on the ground floor because they were afraid that he was going to jump. While he was still throwing his belongings off the balcony the police coordinated with an officer from Australian Embassy who was lowered down to the 8th floor in a cable car so they could try to talk him down. Whilst he was talking to the embassy officer the police broke the room’s door down and quickly grabbed him before he could jump. He was then sent to hospital for treatment.

The officers sent him to the hospital for the treatment without charging him with any accusation.
