Police and foundation medics called to the 8th floor of a Thepprasit Soi 17 condo yesterday found a 41 year old Chinese tourist dead. 

 

Yong Han had taped up the room and lit some charcoal in a stainless steel bowl that was found by his feet. 

 

It was assessed that he had been dead for 24 hours. He had checked into the South Pattaya condo three days ago. 

 

When check-out time came and he did not leave staff used a spare key to gain entry.

 

There was no sign of a struggle or theft. Just 1,000 baht was found on the body that was dressed in black clothes. 

 

A picture showed three cans of Thai beer on a table in the room. 

 

An autopsy is being carried out to confirm the cause of death.

So this was CO2 poisoning?

Seems a strange way to do it but I guess similar to being in a running vehicle in a closed garage.

Sad.

I’m not sure that “popular” was the right term.

a bit scary that it is so easy to do.  Makes one think about providing some passive backup ventilation in one's own home or apartment.  And of course getting some proper CO and CO2 detectors installed and maintained

In theory any sort of open flame cooking is totally prohibited inside condos here, so the situation should never arise. Traditional smoke detectors would probably be of more use in condos here.

 

Houses of course would be a different matter, though there is usually a lot of ventilation in Thai houses especially in the cooking areas. Some condos also have outdoor cooking areas.

Not  only Hong Kong. This, tower block jumps and rat poison pretty much sum it up in China.

but much more comfortable...
as I pointed out elsewhere:

"put a charcoal-oven into the bedroom, take a sleeping pill, open a nice bottle of wine (or whatever you prefer) and start a favorite movie on your TV ( i'll choose "Harold & Maude" ).

After max. 1,5 hrs. you should be back 'home' - painless, nice looking with a vivid rosy face and without any mess for the people picking up your remainings."

as far as the mess it would depend how long it took to discover you..

You can prevent not beeing discovered by an "automatic dead-man" logic on your computer:
If you are not confirming "I'm alive" within 24 hrs, you'll get a warning on your screen.
On 'no reaction' after 48 hrs. an Email is sent to connected people saying: "Maybe something happend to me...Can you check it, please"

Seems a bit odd to me. If you were gonna commit suicide, would you not lay in the bed and sleep rather than a hard floor ? or was body dragged just for the photo op ?

Never knew about this. Sounds completely painless. Ive been through it to the point of passing out in a pressurized chamber (with instructors) to simulate a non violent Cabin depressurization at altitude in a jet or turboprop

 

Apart from some mild confusion I felt nothing

 

 

i had  that too 13  years  ago after landing in Thailand................still  suffer  from it  daily
