    Russian Man Falling From 6th Floor Inside Central Festival

    A Russian tourist shocked people in the night of July 5, as he suddenly fell down from the 6th floor inside Central Festival Pattaya Beach.

    PATTAYA July 5,2013 [PDN];At 08.30 PM, reports came in about an accident where a Russian tourist had fallen to death from the 6th floor inside of Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
    Police and rescue officers immediately rushed out to the scene, where they swiftly inspected the body of the Russian. The Russian was lying in a pool of blood on the 1st floor of the mall.
    The Russian man came to the shopping with three other friends, who were believed to be Russian as well.

    Police tried to talk to them in order to find out more information about how the incident happened, but they were too distraught to talk in detail with the Investigation officers. But they did state that moments before the victim fell down, he was leaning against the railing on the 6th floor, but he had suddenly lost his balance and fell down, which lead to his immediate death.


    Police have asked witnesses and requested CCTV footage from the shopping mall, in order to find out how the disturbing incident happened.

    I had my head sharpened today in Central and my barberess told me that a maintenance man fell into a shaft a couple of days ago in Central and died.

    Bring on the monks.

    WAY TOO TRUE on the above comment. I hate the escalators in Thailand stores, the hand slide is too low and NO guard rails or platforms to stop people from falling.

    What are you talking about?
    What lifts are too short?
    Too short for what?
    What guardrails do lifts have?

    ^ so the escalators are too short and have no guardrails?
    Too short? What, they just pour people off 3 feet from the next floor?

    Knew a handsome Russian lad nicknamed Vod.

    Thai girls would always say 'I love Vod Kaa.' when I'd ask them if they wanted a drink.

    Anyay, hope it wasn't him.

    That is shocking.

    You don't expect russians to fall from the sky while you are out bra shopping.

    I was there the other day. I had a look at the golf stuff while the missus browsed the tit pants. Honest.

    I have no use for women's underwear unless they are thoroughly soiled.
