CHON BURI -- A Russian woman was seriously injured after falling from a room on the fourth floor of a Pattaya Park building and crashing through the roof of the storage area of a 7-Eleven convenience store early on Sunday.

Police identified the woman as Zhanna Grinberg, 37.

He ran out to alert fellow employees before calling police.

On arrival at the scene, the police found the woman lying on the floor, seriously injured.  Her husband and their son were trying to help her.

A police investigation revealed that the woman lives with her husband and son in a room on the fourth floor of the same commercial building in tambon Nong Prue of Bang Lamung district.
