Ralph Chambers

A grandfather of four sent a final message saying “tell the grandkids I love them” just an hour before he died in a tragic accident in Pattaya.

Ralph Chambers, 68, of Brockworth, was enjoying a pint with his friend in a pub in the Chon Buri’s Pattaya district in the evening of December 28 when a car mounted the kerb and smashed into the bar.

Ralph died at the scene. His friend, who moments earlier had swapped seats with his pal, has been severely hurt and remains in hospital, battered and bruised having witnessed the death of his closest friend.

Ralph’s family have been told that the young Thai driver who ploughed into the bar swerved to avoid a dog. The Thai man’s family have reportedly been visiting Mr Ralph’s friend in the hospital every day.
