Mystery falling child case: CCTV reveals terrifying reality
Caption: She fell after playing
Still shots taken from CCTV showed an immigration policeman's child playing on a corridor balcony at a top Pattaya hotel moments before she fell.
The child - aged just five - fell in the early hours of Sunday morning as her father slept in the room. She survived with serious injuries.
It had earlier been a mystery as to what had exactly happened to the child.
She has now been transferred to Chonburi Hospitral, reported Sanook.
They quoted Pol Col Prawit Chorseng - the Pattaya station chief - as saying that parents should look after their children.
The child was simply playing and would not have appreciated the danger and it was up to parents to make sure their children were safe.
The child is the daughter of an immigration policeman who was at the Jomtien hotel for a seminar, it had earlier been reported.
Conflicting reports in the Thai media yesterday suggested that the fall had been from the 5th or 12th floors.
The floor was not mentioned in today's Sanook report.
