A 39-year-old Russian died from injuries sustained in an apparent assault which occurred on Friday, although the details of the attack remain a mystery for now.
Police and rescue workers were called to the Lido Grand Hotel in South Pattaya late on Friday Night after staff discovered Mr Pavel Filonov lying on the floor outside of his room. Initially staff thought he had fallen asleep but a closer inspection revealed he was seriously injured and needed immediate medical treatment.
Mr Filonov was taken to Hospital but was declared dead soon after his arrival. An initial examination, prior to a formal post-mortem examination, determined he had died from a ruptured spleen causing blood to enter his abdominal cavity.
Mr Filonov was due to check out from his room 2 days after the incident took place and had occupied the room for the last month. Other superficial injuries suggested he had been involved in a fight and it is thought the fight occurred away from the hotel and he collapsed in front of his room due to sustaining an earlier ruptured spleen.
CCTV at the hotel has yet to be examined and the Russian Embassy in Bangkok have been made aware of the death which is still under investigation at this time.
