Australian dies after fall from 21st floor balcony


An Australian man taking photographs from outside his apartment died after falling from his 21st floor balcony.

The body of Mark Anthony Woodward, 45, was found outside the View Talay 5 condominium in Jomtien Beach April 30. A smashed camera was still around his neck.

Police said it appeared Woodward was attempting to take photos of the interior of his condo from the balcony, standing on a chair to get a good angle. He apparently lost his balance and fell over the railing.
