A Sisaket man who stabbed his boss after she intervened in a domestic dispute was critically injured when he then leaped from a fourth-floor terrace.
Sa-nga Konglom, 36, was taken to Pattaya Memorial Hospital after the unsuccessful suicide leap from the top floor of a commercial building on Soi Dudee in Central Pattaya. Sa-nga hit a lower-floor awning, partially breaking his fall.
Witness say the incident began after the Sanga, who worked making Isaan-style sausages, got drunk and borrowed a bicycle from his employer, Ms. Chongrak Saengpakdee. Upon returning, the cyclist allegedly got into a heated argument with partner Praiwan Konglom. Chongrak interceded, but was stabbed by Sa-nga for butting in.
The attacker ran up to the top floor and climbed out onto a balcony. Then, in front of a large crowd, dropped to the awning below and crashed to the ground.
Sanga has been released from hospital and is in police custody.
Chongrak was treated and released from hospital.
After stabbing his boss, Sa-nga Konglom jumped from a 4th floor balcony.
