A Swedish tourist succumbed to unidentified health issues in a Phuket hotel room yesterday.

“We arrived at room 4703 on the 4th floor in the Patong Merlin hotel to find the body of the 27-year-old woman on the bed. There were vomit stains on the bed and blanket,” said Lt Col Somsak Tongliang of Patong Police Provincial Police Station.

According to Ms Grundstrom’s boyfriend, named by police as Owe Christoffer Sjogren, also 27, the couple were on holiday in Phuket and had checked in at the hotel the Wednesday prior to the incident. They were scheduled to check out on April 12.

“Mr Sjogren told us that Ms Grundstrom had injured her mouth on Thursday. She went to a clinic the same day and bought medication,” Lt Col Somsak told reporters. “Yesterday morning, however, Mr Sjogren noticed she had stopped breathing.”

At 10:05, Mr Sjogren reportedly called hotel staff for help. Help came too late for the victim. Lt Col Somsak: “The woman passed away before an ambulance from Patong Hospital arrived. Her body was taken to the hospital for further examination,” Col Somsak added.
