The British man who passed away whilst having a cup of coffee at a hotel in Phuket’s Patong district on March 4 had suffered a heart attack, a post-mortem examination revealed.
According to Lt Col Weerapong Rakkhito quoted by The Phuket News, Kathu Police Station was called at 7:45 Friday morning to investigate the death of a British man who had died at the restaurant of the Seaview Patong Hotel on Taweewong Rd. Police arrived at the restaurant to find the body of the man whose name is currently being withheld lying face up on the ground.
“We found no signs of assault or injury on the victim’s body,” Lt Col Weerapong said. “Hotel staff told us that the victim had come down to the restaurant and had some coffee, about 15 minutes later he said he was suffering chest pain and collapsed on the floor.”
Staff attempted to revive him and called the hospital for help, Lt Col Weerapong reported. But when medical staff arrived, the man had already died.
The Britain had only arrived in the country two days earlier. The body was taken to Patong Hospital where doctors have since confirmed that the man had died of a heart attack. The British Embassy has also been notified.
