Boy denied B5 for cigarettes commits suicide

- +

BANGKOK – A 15 year-old boy is believed to have hanged himself because he was upset that his father refused to give him money to buy cigarettes. 

Police were on Sunday told that a body had been found dangling from a rope at a construction camp site in Bung Kum district.

Investigators said the body of a 15-year-old boy (name withheld) was discovered by his father, hanging from a large iron beam behind the worker’s living quarters.

Police said he has been dead for 2-3 days. Nobody spotted the body earlier because there are several giant plastic sheets hanging from the girder. The sheets were used to keep dust from the construction site away from worker’s living areas.
