Woman survives fall from 7th-floor condo


A woman survived a fall from her 7th-floor Pratamnak Hill apartment window following a reported argument with her foreign boyfriend.

Puangpen Maneepan, 25, was unconscious outside The Cliff Condominium on Soi Kasetsin 2 when paramedics arrived Dec. 11. She had suffered numerous broken bones, but was alive.

Police inspected the apartment where she stayed with Scottish boyfriend John Rugg, 30, and found no signs of violence. Neighbors speculated she had jumped in an attempt to commit suicide because the two had an argument.

Rugg was questioned by police and Cliff security guard Rangsan Ployram. The guard said the woman was screaming as she clung to a rail on the balcony before she decided to jump. Instead of helping, he stood and shot a video of her to post online.
