A four year old boy from American fell 10 floors to his death from the View Talay Condo 2 Building B in Jomtien on Tuesday Evening. Rescue Services rushed to the location and medical staff took over administering CPR from the boy’s distraught father but he was declared dead-at-the-scene. Michael Labadan Wolfe, who was born in the Philippines, was apparently playing on the balcony of his father’s apartment. Mr. Brett James Wolfe aged 40, a local Muay Thai Boxing Instructor, left his son on the balcony and it is thought he climbed on a chair and fell over the edge of the railings. Mr. Wolfe rushed to the ground floor and began CPR as concerned residents looked on. Police Lieutenant Colonel Tarataep, Deputy Chief of Pattaya Police, was called in to investigate the case and will question the boys father after he is given time to come to terms with the loss of his son who was adored by many in the apartment complex.
A tragic update now on the story we featured on 25th August relating to the death of a four year old American boy at View Talay 2 Condominium in Jomtien. The body of the boy’s father, Mr. Brett James Wolfe aged 40, was discovered on Saturday afternoon in a 5th floor room at the Jomtien Plaza Condotel. A cleaner found the body after repeated knocks to the front door remained unanswered and she therefore used a spare key to enter. Mr. Wolfe was fully clothed and lying on the bed. A glass containing a selection of white and purple sleeping pills was next to the body and an 11 page suicide note was left next to the bed which clearly showed that the pain of losing his son in such a tragic way was too much for Mr. Wolfe to cope with. The suicide note revealed his love for his Son and how sorry he was that he left him on the balcony of his View Talay 2 apartment for a matter of minutes, during which time the boy fell to his death off a chair placed at the edge of the balcony. Police Lieutenant Colonel Anuchert from Dongtan Police Sub-Station, who was the officer assigned to the boy’s death only days ago, inspected the scene of the apparent suicide and confirmed that nothing suspicious was found to suggest third-party involvement in the death. Mr. Wolfe’s body was taken to the Police Forensic Institute in Bangkok for a post mortem examination and the American Embassy in Bangkok have been informed and are currently attempting to locate the former wife of Mr. Wolfe and mother of the boy who resides in The Philippines so she can be made aware of the double-tragedy.
