Australian man found hanged outside home in Thalang

By The Thaiger

An Australian man has been found hanged outside his house in Thalang.

 

The family of the victim told police that the man had been suffering from extreme stress brought on by financial concerns. He was worried that he might not be able to afford their school tuition and was further affected by his children’s lack of attention and time spent on social media and TV.

 

Police were called to the house at 9.30 am yesterday morning (Thursday).

When children enter the equation the stress is ten fold. 

He was stressed about school tution and other things. 

Hard to drag a family back home when you have nothing to go back to. 

Suicide is never the answer but stressing about the ones you love is a whole new level. 

 

 

"Hard to drag a family back home when you have nothing to go back to." - true.

 

That's why I always tell "newbies" that I introduce to Thailand, word to the effect, "Don't put all your eggs in the Thailand basket, and always have a Plan B, which is outside Thailand." 

 

He must have been under a lot of pressure, but surely, living a cheaper lifestyle must have been an option.

 

RIP.

For how long, that is the question.

 

It's like the wild west down there. Gunfight at the O.K Patong.

What a sad day, Guy was a neighbour of ours for some years, we moved away from Phuket some months ago. He was a kind and generous man, always smiling, and looked as fit as a fiddle. Our commiserations to his wife a lovely Lady. RIP Guy

Which one? The Australian who committed suicide? Or the Frenchman who died of a heart attack? Very sorry for both of them.

Read the story (or even this thread) and you'll see that Guy was the name of the French guy.
