Lt Col Somkid Onchan of the Tha Chatchai Police was called to the scene at about 10:30am.
Police along with rescue workers from Mai Khao Tambon Administrative Organization (OrBorTor), the Kusoldharm Foundation Muang Mai branch and from Loma Rescue arrived at the scene to find a blue Phuket-registered Honda Wave motorbike parked on the bridge.
A witness at the scene told police that a man had jumped off the bridge into the water below.
Rescue workers began a search for the man, but it was a local resident who reported finding the body of a man floating face-down not far from the shore nearby at about 11:10am.
Rescue workers were dispatched and brought ashore the body, which was dressed wearing a white shirt, denim shorts and a pair of white sneakers.
The man was identified as Mai Khao resident Rungroj Normad, 47.
Mr Rungroj’s body was taken to Thalang Hospital, where doctors are to perform a post-mortem examination before Mr Rungroj’s body can be released to relatives.
