A 24-year-old Portuguese woman was found dead on Sunday morning after falling or jumping from the sixth floor open desk of a Bangkok hotel.

Bang Rak police deputy inspector Pol Captain Thanapat Suwannak said the body of the foreign tourist, whose name was later identified as Maceiras Rijo Vera, was found entangled in a barbed-wire fence at the base of the hotel on Maha Nakhon Road in Maha Preuktharam sub-district at 8am.

Police determined that she was sharing a hotel room on the third floor with her elder sister.

They suspect she committed suicide. 

A CCTV footage reportedly showed that she went to the open deck to perform a yoga at around 5am. 

The body was sent to the Police General Hospital for autopsy.

The Portuguese embassy was asked to co-ordinate for the transport of her body back to home country for religious rites.
