PATTAYA — A 78-year-old Finnish man was found dead 10 floors below the condominium balcony police said he jumped from this morning near Jomtien Beach.

The man, who reportedly lived on the fourth floor of the Angket Condominium, left a note for a friend in Swedish before going up to the 10th floor to jump from a hallway balcony, according to Lt. Nakornrat Nonsilad of Pattaya Police Station.

“Have a good one,” it concluded.
