A British man has been found dead in front of his hotel room on Koh Chang. Koh Chang is in Thailand’s far east, off the coast of Trat.

 

The 45 year old tourist died near a swimming pool at the Sea View Koh Chang Hotel, according to tourist police.

 

Police say the man was lying in front of his room since early this morning. A maid found the man and checked for a pulse. She alerted the hotel management who contacted the Koh Chang police. The Police then notified the local Tourist Police.

 

They determined the man had been dead for a few hours. Police say there were no signs of a struggle but found over-the-counter medication in his room.

 

His body was sent to hospital for a post-mortem. The British Embassy has been contacted.

That's pretty good going for a member of staff to check that. Well done.

Oh dear, will this be down as suicide now, seeing as he presumably consumed the medication himself?

Nice to see BIB looking fit with no bulging belly. I hope they think better than the beer belly type and dont write this off as suicide.

30'ish million people a year holiday in Thailand, very many of them are of an age where they might croak from natural causes.

45 doesn't seem like 'that age' to me.

I do wonder how many foreigners die each year in Thailand and how it compares per capita per year with other tourist destinations.
