Man believes he can fly – but discovers he’s wrong

A would-be second-storey man saw his burglary dreams end with a thud on Tuesday in the capital’s Prampi Makara district.

Police said the man was trying to enter a house via an upstairs window when the 56-year-old owner caught him in the act and shouted for help.

In a desperate bid to escape, he jumped the two stories to the ground, injuring a leg badly enough that he was easy pickings for arriving police. Koh Santepheap
