BANGKOK — A Korean man was found dead Monday morning after he fell into a condominium’s elevator shaft from the eighth floor.

The naked body of a Korean man was recovered at about 7:30am on the ground of an elevator shaft inside Aspire Sukhumvit 48 condominium.


The 33-year-old tourist had entered the country with his girlfriend on Sunday and was residing at the condominium, according to Lt.Col. Palakorn Tanompan of Khlong Tan Police.

Witnesses told police the Korean couple had an argument early Monday morning. Palakorn said CCTV footage shows the man walking out of the room naked and hitting an elevator door with fire extinguisher. It then shows him kicking the doors until they open and falls to the ground floor, he added.


The man’s girlfriend and witnesses will be subjected to further questioning at the police station, said Palakorn.
