Cambodian man critically injured after fall from Jomtien hotel


A Cambodian man was critically injured after tumbling six floors at a Jomtien Beach hotel.

The Khmer man in his 20s, known only as Ong, was found outside the Jomtien Longstay hotel April 11. He was still alive and transferred to a local hospital.

Security guard Saiyan Menthong said he didn’t see the fall, but heard the body land. Ong had been staying on the 6th floor with a foreign man believed to be from South Africa.

The guard didn’t know what happened and he wasn’t able to give much detail as to why Ong plummeted from the balcony.

Rescue workers give emergency treatment to Ong before transferring him to the hospital.
