    Yet another balcony fall

    This one is quite high profile though - maybe there will be a change to balcony safety in Thailand?

    That makes sense. I would also think about it if I had to drive a Tata

    Looking more like suicide than accident.

    Thai police suspect Tata Motors' Managing Director Karl Slym killed himself when he fell from the 22nd floor of a Bangkok hotel on Sunday.
    The British executive was in Thailand to attend a board meeting of the company's local affiliate.


    Investigators believe Mr Slym may have taken his own life because of a note left in his room referring to domestic problems.


    Police official Somyot Boonyakaew said investigators "didn't find any sign of a struggle" in the room Mr Slym was sharing with his wife in the Shangri-La Hotel.


    "We found a window open. The window was very small so it was not possible that he would have slipped," he told Reuters news agency.


    "He would have had to climb through the window to fall out because he was a big man. From my initial investigation, we believe he jumped."
