An unnamed man from Russia has died after falling from a balcony onto metal spikes below in Pattaya in the early hours of yesterday morning.
The man whose identity has yet to be released reportedly returned to his condominium complex on Soi Thap Phraya at around 4am, when he realised he had lost his door key.
He then apparently decided that the best course of action was to wake his next door neighbours and climb across their balcony to his apartment.
Whilst attempting to climb across he slipped and fell onto spiked railings put in place to try and prevent people from climbing from apartment to apartment, impaling his leg in the process.
Witnesses recalled hearing the man scream in pain as his leg was impaled.
Rescue workers were immediately called and after eventually freeing the man he was taken to Pattaya City Memorial Hospital, he was pronounced dead a short while after arrival.
Doctors told reporters that the man had suffered massive blood loss and that they were unable to save him.
Police said that they are treating the death as accidental.
