A tenth grader in Prachin Buri province fell to this death from the third floor of his school building on Tuesday morning in a suspected case of suicide, police said.

The Muang Prachin Buri Police Station was alerted at 8.08am that a student had fallen from the sixth building of the Prachin Rat Amroong school.

Witnesses told police that the student, whose name was withheld, fell from the third floor but his fall was broken by tree branches before he hit the ground and became unconscious. He was rushed to the Apai Phubet Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Natthawat Boonchaikiart, deputy director of the school, told police that the student had appeared depressed and he jumped out while other students were about to sing the national anthem. He said the student was suspected to have committed suicide on the first day of the school’s mid-term exam.

The boy’s father, an engineer, and his mother, a nurse, took custody of his body from the hospital, and refused to speak to reporters.
