PATTAYA: An Iranian man fell to his death from an eight-storey building at a housing estate in Bang Lamung district on Saturday morning.

The body of the 55-year-old man, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives, was found lying face down on the ground behind the building at the Ekmongkhol housing estate in tambon Nong Prue, said Pattaya police, who were alerted at around 6.30am on Saturday.

Anan Chaiwong, 43, a security guard at the housing estate, told police he had never seen the man before. While patrolling the housing estate, he heard a thud behind the new building, which was not yet open for service. He rushed to check and saw the body. 

Police inspecting the area have yet to find out from which floor the Iranian tourist fell or the circumstances leading to his death. They were examining security video and calling those close to the man for questioning.
