Iain Mackay

A British man has bled to death in Thailand after cutting himself on a smashed mirror following a furious row with his Thai girlfriend.

Iain Mackay, 40, is understood to have got into a fight at a resort in Hua Hin after discovering the woman chatting with another man at a bar in the coastal city.

Although the exact circumstances of his death are not yet known, the underwater research specialist from Stornaway in Scotland is said to have appeared in a nearby shop a short time later suffering fatal injuries caused by shards of glass from a smashed mirror.

Witnesses called for paramedics after Mr MacKay appeared in the shop bleeding heavily, but he died in hospital a short time later. The local police force said that no crime had been committed in relation to his death.

The British holidaymaker and his Thai girlfriend had been visiting a bar in the resort of Hua Hin when he got into an argument with another man, according to the Mirror.

Mr MacKay is said to have been angry that the woman was talking to the man. Minutes later he was found in a nearby shop, bleeding profusely apparently from cuts caused by the smashed mirror.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirmed he died on Friday.
