This is the moment cops burst into a flat after reports of a suicide – and find the body was actually a pair of SWIMMING SHORTS.
A concerned neighbour called police after noticing a deathly shadow behind the curtains which resembled a hanging body.
A dozen police and paramedics rushed to the apartment in Pattaya, Thailand, amid fears of a death or murder at 1am this morning.
But the cops erupt into laughter after forcing open the door and finding in the bedrom a pair of blue trunks hanging on a coat hanger to dry – with the light creating a ghoulish shadow.
Khun Monthira, who filmed the police arriving, said: ”Everybody feared the worst when they arrived.
”But there was much laughter and relief when we went inside and saw it was a pair of shorts.
”The person who rang the police was a little bit embarrassed after.
”But it’s better to be safe than sorry. Thankfully there was no problem and everybody saw the funny side.”
The police arrived at the 5th floor room and after nobody answered they had to use a master key to get inside.
They walked inside and immediately noticed the blue swimming shorts hanging on a coat hanger in front of the window.
Officers have now warned the person who lives there not to put clothes in front of the curtain – and to turn off the light when he leaves.
Pol. Capt. Yongyuth Wannuea from Pattaya Police, said: ”We’re glad that citizens are vigilant and call police if they think there is a problem.
”There were good intentions with the phone call. The person living there should hang the clothes where they are supposed to.
”We let the homeowner know that we had visited and we advised them not to put clothes in front of the window.”
