Thai Rath said in their headline that it was a gloomy day for suicides yesterday.

Two women jumped within hours of each other in separate incidents in and around Bangkok.

At 3.30pm Bukkhalo police went to a condo in the Ratchapreuk area where a woman had jumped from the 19th floor. She was found to be suffering from cancer and police said she was probably stressed.

Meanwhile at 5pm a large crowd gathered at Baiyoke 1 tower on Petchaburi Soi 19 after a young Thai woman jumped from the parking lot.

Manatsanan Panyanudechdecha, 22, was seen holding onto an outer railing with both hands. Someone called out to her and she looked vacantly over – then jumped.

She was wearing gold jewelry.

Her bag containing an iPhone 6 and about 9,000 baht was found on the eighth floor of the nine floor parking lot.

Also in the bag were driving licences and an appointment card for a medical examination at Sinphet Hospital for the same day.

Investigations continue. – Thai Rath
