    Korean Tourist Throws Away 100,000 Baht and Threatens to Jump from Pattaya Condo

    Sunday evening, November 26th, a South Korean tourist created a disturbance by threatening to leap from an upscale condominium complex in Pattaya. Additionally, he scattered a bundle of Thai banknotes valued at over 100,000 baht from his balcony.


    The bizarre incident took place at 4 PM Sunday at an 8-story condo building located in Soi Buakhao in Central Pattaya, Banglamung district, Chonburi province. The name of the condo was withheld by request. Upon receiving a report of a foreigner threatening to jump from his 8th-floor balcony, the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation rescue workers immediately rushed to the location, along with police officers from Pattaya Police Station.

    There, authorities witnessed a Korean tourist, whose name was withheld to protect his privacy, marching in circles on the balcony. The 41-year-old man appeared confused and paranoid as he shouted loudly while making threats to jump from the balcony if anyone tried to approach him.

    At one point, the tourist scattered a big stack of Thai banknotes, later counted at roughly 100,000 baht, from the balcony while continuing to resist rescue. After about one hour had passed, he disappeared into his room.

    Meanwhile, the rescue workers below inflated their air cushion in case the man might jump. Pattaya police subsequently brought in a Korean interpreter to pacify him. He eventually opened his room door to allow police officers to take him to the ground floor for a chat.

    The tourist, now calm, claimed to Pattaya police that he suffers a heart disease and recently arrived in Pattaya about a month ago. Over the past 2-3 days, he had been stressed because his Thai girlfriend, who was not identified, allegedly deceived him, taking his money to open a business and then leaving him. Additionally, when he called a Korean friend to demand borrowed money to be repaid, he was verbally abused. Frustrated and stressed, he exploded emotionally, leading to the mentioned actions.

    The police subsequently transported the tourist to a hospital for a medical check and reached out to his relatives in South Korea to address the situation.
