At around 9.30pm last night rescue service rushed to the overpass at Mae Guang Intersection in Sansai following reports of a suicidal man.
On arrival they found a man who appeared to be intoxicated who was threatening to jump the 5.5metre bridge onto traffic. After half an hour negotiation, the man prepared to leap and was rescued at the last minute by a volunteer rescue worker.
This morning the man told authorities that he had been chatting to a woman he met online for five days when he transferred her a few thousand baht. But after the transfer she immediately blocked him, sending him into depression. He got drunk and decided to end it all.
