Police and medical workers believe a heat stroke caused the death of a Malaysian tourist who died after collapsing in a house in Samut Songkhram province today.
Samut Songkhram City Police Station officers and medics from Somdej Phra Phutthaloetla Hospital arrived at the house in Lat Yai subdistrict Wednesday afternoon. On the floor, they discovered the lifeless body of Yamadurin Mueangjai, 63, from Malaysia.
Investigators questioned Mr Yamadurin’s wife Jab Mueangjai, who said they had entered Thailand by car through the Sadao checkpoint. They travelled further north to Samut Songkhram and spent two days in the province.
Ms Jab told police officers that her husband suddenly collapsed after the extreme temperature during the day went up even further. She immediately called for help from their neighbour who attempted mouth-to-mouth breathing but could not save Mr Yamadurin’s life.
In an initial report, police officers with the help of medical staff concluded that Mr Yamadurin died from a heat stroke caused by the high temperatures. A final examination of the body will be conducted at Somdej Phra Phutthaloetla Hospital.
