Police in Pattaya, Thailand have arrested a 20- year old- mother who put her newborn baby boy in a plastic bag and threw him to his death from the 17th floor of a condominium.
Shocked investigators and rescue staff were called to a Pattaya condominium after the newborn baby boy was thrown from a condominium to the ground on Monday, November 6.
The little boy had come loose from a plastic bag and had massive trauma to the head. Phitak Nernsaeng from Pattaya police arrived on the scene at Pattaya Sai 2 late afternoon Monday with medics from Sawang Boriboon Muang Pattaya.
Police were told by a curtain fitter called Apichart, 26, who was working in Room 473 on the fourth floor, that he had seen the plastic bag fly past his window. He turned his head to see it hit the ground and saw that it had contained an infant.
After regaining his composure he rushed to inform condo security who alerted the authorities, reported Sanook.
Local police chief Apichai Krobpetch said that the baby’s mother, Netchanok “Beam” Nokyungthong showed no sadness or remorse. She did it to spite her married South Korean ex-boyfriend who had left her.
CCTV and information received had led the shocked police to a room on the 17th floor where they found Ms Nokyungthong.
In the room were clothing and flip-flops covered in blood thrown in the trash and bloodstains on the wall of the bathroom and window leading to the balcony. They recovered what looked like an umbilical cord on the bathroom floor.
Beam told the police that she had known the father of the child for two years. He is a South Korean engineer who has a wife from his country and lives in Sri Racha. She said he used to come and see her occasionally. But when she became pregnant he did not want to see her anymore, she said.
She said that on Saturday night she suddenly went into labor and gave birth to her son in the bathroom of the condo.
She said matter-of-factly that the boy was fine. But because she was upset with her ex boyfriend and had no money she decided to put him in a plastic bag and throw him out the window.
Chief Apichai said that the mother still had blood coming from her body and she was sent to Banglamung Hospital.
He told the press that she was not sad or remorseful in any way whatsoever. She is being processed for prosecution.
