Pregnant woman and unborn baby survive being 'pushed off 110ft cliff by husband'

A pregnant woman and her unborn baby survived after allegedly being pushed off a 110ft cliff by her debt-laden husband.

The husband has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the incident on June 9.

Wang Nan, who is three months pregnant, survived the 110ft fall in the Pha Taem National Park in Ubon Ratchathani province on June 9, but suffered fractures in her left thigh, arm, collar bone and knees.

Miraculously the 32-year-old’s unborn baby appears to have been unharmed. Police say her fall was somewhat broken by trees.

Wang initially told officers that she had fallen off the cliff after passing out. However, police in Thailand suspected foul play in the incident, according to  The Nation .

The couple are from China but had been on a trip to Thailand.

Following an investigation, Wang finally provided a new account and accused her husband, Yu Xiaodong, 33, of pushing her off the cliff because he wanted her fortune of 100 million baht (£2.5 million) to pay off his debts.

Pol Colonel Charnchai Innara, commander of the Khong Chiam district police station, said they found the husband suspicious after noticing him standing at a distance from the scene as rescuers helped his wife after the fall.

An interpreter also overhead Wang saying to her husband at hospital: “Why did you do that to me?”

The woman later told officers that she was unable to tell her story earlier because her husband wouldn’t leave her side while she was receiving treatment, according to the report.

He threatened to kill her if she had told police what happened, Wang claimed.

A tourist found her lying wounded on a trail in the park after she had tumbled down the cliff.

Police arrested Yu at the Sapphasitthiprasong Hospital in Muang district when he visited his wife on Monday.

The couple, from east China’s Jiangsu province, were in Thailand doing business and decided to take a trip to the park, famous for its rock formation.

Officer Charnchai said all of the couple’s assets belonged to Wang and the husband came from a poor family.

He later accumulated a large amount of debt and asked Wang to help him replay it, but she only agreed to pay half.

Police are now seeking a court’s approval to extend Yu’s detention amid further investigations.

He has denied attempted murder, according to the report.
