American dies after fall from 21st floor condo


An Russian born American man suffering from Alzheimer’s disease died after falling from the 21st floor of a Jomtien Beach condominium.

Semyon Roitman, 67, died instantly in the fall from his balcony at the Lumpini Park Jomtien. It’s unknown whether the victim fell or jumped, but police have ruled out any foul play.

A condominium maid said Roitman was suffering from the dementia of Alzheimer’s and was often forgetful.

The body was sent to the Forensics Institute and the American embassy was contacted.
