An 84-year-old elderly Thai man reportedly jumped to death this morning in Bangkok’s Ratchathewi district after his 57-year-old daughter succumbed to the Covid19 virus.
Phaya Thai police received a report at 5 a.m. this morning of the remains of an old man lying at the foot of a building on Banthat Thong Rood.
The body was identified as that of Peng-gi Sae-Tia and the body of his daughter Pranee Hatthasothana was found inside the building. Pranee was apparently bedridden from other chronic conditions.
Initial investigation reveals that the man, who is ethnically Chinese, committed suicide out of grief over the loss of his daughter.
