Eerik Meister, 37, and Marten Oks, 24, were staying on the second floor of a hotel on Soi Khok Makham in Rawai. They removed the mattress from the room and put it on the awnings outside their room window and went to sleep.

Chalong Police were notified of the incident at 10:30am this morning (Feb 22) and arrived at the scene with Tourist Police. A fire truck was also called in as police and rescue workers woke the men up and helped bring them down from the awnings.

Neither of the men had any injuries and both showed signs of intoxication. Police searched their hotel room to find their belongings damaged and scattered everywhere.
