    Yes, I've often considered a swan dive off the fourth floor after forgetting about the web check in.

    Backpacker jumps 150ft to his death from a 4th floor escalator at a Bangkok airport

    A backpacker has plummeted 150ft to his death from a fourth floor escalator at an airport.
    The man, who held Australian and Irish passports, arrived at the passenger terminal at Suvarnabumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, on Thursday.
    CCTV shows the 32-year-old jumping after he squeezed through high glass anti-suicide walls, airport bosses claimed.



    He had not yet checked in for his departing flight and fell to the ground from inside the building.
    The man's body - with an acoustic guitar still strapped to his back - was found face down at 6.25am by horrified staff.
    He was rushed to hospital and later pronounced dead after suffering severe injuries.

    Nah mate, this thread has been amalgamated with another one with the exact subject material. I did comment on the first one as you noticed, so when a new thread appeared on the same subject, again I did comment, was the first to comment to draw attention to this, this double post.
    Now I commented so that the OP was made aware of the double post, in a polite way.
    Before he was met with something more like the Alzheimer's TD club posters comments "Bayswater swewer rat abortion this has been posted already in the Tea club section "
    Or " Oih Mods why hasn't this been moved "

    Not much chance of that Grace, anyone who launches themselves from extreme hights is either in extreme psychological torment or tripping.

    Rumour has it he was supposed to fly two days earlier with his GF who had accompanied him on this trip. He went to the toilet and never came back. She spent two days looking for him until she got the news about what happened back at the airport.
    Just to add to the mystery - he had been stabbed in those two missing days and had been at a Bangkok hospital for treatment.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    I remember when i used to holiday in Pattaya before living in the shit tip i hated that taxi journey up the heartbreak highway to the airport. Back to your cold grey town, cold flat, mountain of mail on the doorstep 2 on 2 off in the fucking North Sea and a knot in your stomach called Noi or Lek. It was soul destroying.....ok well being a miserable bastard i didnt get a taxi i used to get the public bus but the feeling was the same.

    He was a backpacker? I assumed they don't have the most salubrious of holidays, from what I've seen.
    You'd think he'd be glad to finally go home and have a proper bath and change of underwear, instead of taking the leap.
