Woman cut rope holding painters 26 floors high, Thai police say


A tenant of a high-rise condominium in Thailand cut the support line for two painters, reportedly unhappy that she hadn't been told they'd be working, and left them hanging above the 26th level until they were rescued by a couple, according to police.

According to Police Colonel Pongjak Preechakarunpong, chief of the Pak Kret police station north of Bangkok, the woman is charged with attempted murder and property destruction.

Pongjak did not clarify what caused the suspect to cut the rope, but Thai media said that she was reportedly irritated when the workers showed outside her door and she hadn't received the condo's statement that they would be working on October 12.

Two painters were seen on social media requesting tenants on the 26th floor to open the window and let them in. One of the painters, Song, a Myanmar national, told Thai media that he and two pals descended from the 32nd level to repair a break in the building.
