Briton dies after fall from East Pattaya apartment


A British tourist died after falling from the third floor of an East Pattaya apartment.

Satpal Singh Binag, 35, expired at Pattaya Memorial Hospital of excessive blood loss Dec. 7.

Police found the Briton bleeding profusely from a head wound and suffering various broken bones outside the P.R.S. Mansion.

Hotel employees said Binag had been vacationing in Pattaya for a month. Lately he’d been seen spending lavishly on a Thai woman and was said to be concerned about his finances.

It remains unclear whether he fell, jumped or was pushed to his death. Police speculated he was drunk, but sent the body to the Forensics Institute for a more-educated determination.
