A 35-year-old British tourist was fatally injured after he jumped down from the second floor of the departure terminal of the Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
Police said Beker Edwakb Francis died on his way to hospital shortly after he jumped from the second floor of the terminal at the spot between Gate 3 and Gate 4 at 0:10 am Friday.
Actually, security guards spotted Fransic trying to jump down at Gate 8 Thursday afternoon and took him to the security office to try to calm him down.
The man said he did not have money to buy plane ticket home so the airport officials were trying to contact the British embassy to locate his relatives.
Airport officials told police that the man came out of the office to smoke now and then and security officials always came out with him.
But at 10 minutes after midnight, he came out of the security office to smoke again but this time he ran very fast and jumped down.
