CityNews – On April 1st an onlooker uploaded a YouTube video depicting an angry foreigner at Kad Suan Kaew Mall in Chiang Mai. Witnesses claim the father was arguing with his wife while threatening to throw their son off of the third floor balcony. Meanwhile their young daughter (green top) was standing next to the father throughout the incident.
It is unclear from the short video, which caught the end of the argument, whether the father was actually threatening to throw his son from the balcony.
The video does show a local ice cream vendor (white shirt) step in and tackle the father and son away from the railing, prompting security and other shoppers to intervene as well. It is clear there was a struggle between the intervening parties to separate the father from the son.
Coconuts Bangkok reports that the man was sent to the police station to calm down.
