Painters in Thailand left dangling from high-rise condominium after angry resident cuts support rope

A pair of painters in Thailand were left dangling 26 stories above the ground after a resident inside the high-rise condominium, seemingly frustrated after they appeared outside her room without warning, severed their support rope.

A resident of the building cut the support rope for the two painters, apparently angry she wasn’t told they would be doing work, and left them hanging above the 26th floor until a couple rescued them, police said Wednesday.

The woman who cut the rope is facing attempted murder and property destruction charges, announced Pol. Col. Pongjak Preechakarunpong, chief of the Pak Kret police station north of the Thai capital. She initially denied playing a role but confessed on Wednesday after the authorities showed her CCTV footage and forensic evidence linking her to the crime, including her fingerprints on the rope.

The 34-year-old told officers she did not intend to kill the workers.

The incident occurred the afternoon of Oct. 12, shortly after the painters arrived to repair a crack on the residential building, not far from Bangkok. One of the workers, a Myanmar national named Song, told the Thai media that he and his two friends were lowering themselves from the 32nd floor when he felt the rope supporting them go suddenly slack.

They immediately started calling out for help as soon as they realized their rig was unstable. Terrifying video shared online show the pair hanging precariously by the 26th floor of the condominium, asking residents to let them inside.

Praphaiwan Setsing said she and her British husband raced to the window when he noticed the panicked painter trying to get their attention. A third colleague, who continued to support the workers from above, allowed the couple enough time to pull the pair to safety, she said.

“This incident is shocking and should not happen at all,” Setsing added.

Pongjak did not say Wednesday what prompted the woman to cut the rope, but Thai media reported that she became annoyed when the painters appeared outside her apartment without notice from the condo.

If convicted on the attempted murder charge, she could face a prison term up to 20 years.
