Burmese man injured in fall from 3rd floor balcony


A Burmese man was injured when, during a round of heavy drinking, he fell from a third-floor balcony.

Identified only as “Jor,” the 25-year-old migrant fell from the top floor of a shophouse near the corner of Soi 15 and Soi Buakaow. He was rushed to Banglamung Hospital.

Witnesses reported seeing Jor, a laundry attendant at the Welcome Hotel, drinking with some of the 10 other Burmese workers living above the 7-Eleven market. He’d apparently walked out on a balcony and lost his balance.
