Thailand: Swedish Tourist Falls From Hotel in Phuket, Dies

An unidentified Swedish tourist plunged from the third floor of a resort at Phuket's Karon Beach last night (February 24), dying later from head injuries. The cause of his fall is unknown as this posting is filed.
COMMENT: Falls from hotels in Thailand, unfortunately, are not that uncommon, largely because of the partying nature of many foreign tourists.

Although prudence and moderation are useful virtues to espouse, in practice they rarely are effective for those that refuse to embrace them.

This incident will be updated as new information becomes available.
