Thai Rath

A British tourist fell to his death from the 15th floor of a Chiang Mai condominium on Sunday night.

Phil Edward Miller Hardwicke, 57, died after landing on a bench next to the third-floor swimming pool at the Lanna 3 Condo on Huay Kaew road in Tambon Chang Phuak, Muang district.

Condo staff told police that the man had been renting the room for several months and lived alone there.

His fall was seen by horrified fellow residents, who were swimming at the time.

Chang Phuak police checked his room and found that it had been locked from the inside. The room was tidy and nothing appeared to have been stolen.

Police also found a diary that he had written about conflicts he had with his family.

The body was sent for a post mortem at Chiang Mai Hospital and the British consular office in Chiang Mai was informed of the incident. – The Nation
