A Finnish man died after he fell from the sixth floor of the passenger terminal at Suvarnabhumi airport on Friday night.
The tourist was found lying face-up with broken legs and multiple fractures on the fourth floor in the outbound passenger Zone F in front of a Thai Airways International ticket booth when tourist police arrived after being alerted at around 9.30pm.
The man, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives, was still breathing when medical staff gave him first aid. He was rushed to Samitivej Srinakharin Hospital before he was pronounced dead shortly afterward.
Police said the Finnish national had entered the country on Sept 8 with a 30-day visa before extending his stay until Nov 6. Before the fatal fall, the man was seen using a mobile phone in front of a ticket booth on the sixth floor. He reportedly jumped from the sixth floor and landed to the fourth floor.
Investigators have informed the Finnish embassy about the incident.
