Sukhendu Kumar Kundu

A 59-year-old doctor from Calcutta died on holiday in Thailand moments after complaining of breathlessness while doing the Underwater Sea Walk, a guided marine stroll listed among the must-do activities during a trip to Koh Larn near Pattaya, Chon Buri province.

Indian gynaecologist Sukhendu Kumar Kundu, who used to run a nursing home at Behrampore in Murshidabad, had gone for the underwater walk on March 6 with a local tour operator, family members said on Tuesday.

Kundu was brought out of the water because of respiratory distress and taken to a government hospital in Pattaya but doctors had to declare him dead upon arrival. Doctors say Mr Kundu died of asphyxiation by drowning.
