A resident of a 32-storey building in Thailand Police announced on Wednesday (27) that the support rope of two painters was cut, causing them to be suspended above the 26th floor until a couple rescued them.
She would have been upset if he hadn’t told her they were going to do the job.
Pongjak Prishakarunpong, head of the police station in Pak Kret, north of the Thai capital, told The Associated Press that the woman faces charges of attempted murder and property destruction.
Pongjak did not say what prompted her to cut the rope, but Thai media reported that she was apparently disappointed when the workers appeared outside her room. You hadn’t seen an announcement from the apartment that they would be working on the site from October 12th.
A video shared on social media shows the painters asking residents of the 26th floor to open the window and let them in. One of the painters, a Myanmar national named Song, told Thai media that he and his two friends came down from the 32nd floor to repair a crack in the building.
Upon reaching the thirtieth floor, they felt that the rope was heavier, and when they looked down, they saw someone on the twenty-first floor opening a window and cutting the rope. He tried to seek help from other units, but no one was there.
A third colleague continued to hold them from the top floor, said Praphaiwan Sitseng, the villager who rescued them.
Pravayuan said her British husband noticed an artist pointing at her for help and invited her to talk to them. “This incident is horrific and should not happen,” she said.
The condominium administration accompanied the painters to report what had happened to the police. Media reports said the 34-year-old initially denied responsibility, but police sent the cut rope for fingerprint and DNA analysis.
On Wednesday, the woman and her lawyer appeared at the police station. After the police showed her CCTV footage and forensic evidence, she admitted but denied any intention to kill the workers.
Bongjak said the suspect has been temporarily released. He said the police will file a case in district court within 15 days. She faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of attempted murder.
