A 68 year old man from the
Netherlands jumped from the fifth
floor of a Hua Hin hotel where he
had been staying for the past
A large crowd of people from the Darun Suksa School saw the body as the school broke up for the day yesterday evening.
Dead in a walkway next to the Hua Hin Place Guest House was Robert Hendricus Cornelis Meuwessen who originally came from Amsterdam.
He was dressed in white t-shirt and white shorts. The body was sent for autopsy.
A maid at the guest house Wasana Ngamleua, 51, said the deceased had been staying in a lower floor room for a month. He had passed her in the corridor and looked like a man with the weight of the world on his mind. He didn't say anything.
He went up to the fifth floor flat roof where he often went for exercise and sunbathing.
The next thing she head was a thud - she ran out and called the authorities.
She said the deceased was a lovely guy who was a vegetarian and never made trouble for anyone.
Hua Hin station chief Pol Col Thanakan Wongsirilak said that CCTV had been examined and this was a clear case of suicide.
