German, 24, dies after plunge from new Pattaya hotel


A young German man died after plunging seven stories to his death from a new Pattaya hotel.

Johann Nicolas-Fabian Schubler, 24, was pronounced dead at Pattaya Memorial Hospital Oct. 20 after either jumping or falling from a recently opened hotel on Soi 10 near Beach Road.

Hotel Assistant Manager Rithvitchya Chaankul said Schubler had checked in on Oct. 8 and was due to leave on Oct. 24. His stay was uneventful and that the young German had been spending time with an unidentified Thai woman.

Police said the German’s room showed no signs of a struggle. Investigators speculated Schubler either fell by accident or jumped due to some romantic distress. Police planned to continue investigating, tracking down the woman who’s identification card the hotel had copied.
