Your are absolutely right Andrew. Many foreigners that die here came over to drink and drug it up then die from either an overdoes, drug/alcohol interactions, Alcohol poisoning or being in a drunken stupor and falling to their deaths. 

 

The audience here on TVF are quick to assume foul play and theft for everything.

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

I would guess a heart attack from unaccustomed exertion in the pool owing to being in a happy holidays frame of mind.

Wonderful wild conjecture !

Murder, poisoned, suicide !

Why not "natural causes" as in heart arrest ? High blood pressure exacerbated by sunbathing? Stroke and  blood clot?

RIP.

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

The foreign office of the UK and Australia have statistics that you're 20x more likely to die on a trip to Thailand than a trip to any western country.

The UK stats are no longer discoverable (disappeared from Google), disappeared a year or two back.

The Australian stats are, but not in an obvious form.

 

Numbers of deaths for Brits under 40s here,

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/5908851/most-deadly-countries-world-young-british-deaths-cambodia-thailand-spain/

Cambodia 8 per 100k

Thailand 6 per 100k 

Spain 0.4 per 100k

You seem to be playing the detective, I'm surprised you don't know.

What you're saying, then, is that there are no UK statistics available.

 

"Thailand 6 per 100k"

That's a 0.006% chance of dying here, so, 99,994 visitors out of 100,000 did just fine!

"And here's the (I was going to say living!) proof. . . "

 

Quite the opposite, in fact, this is from that website...

"These statistics are being created automatically from 695 cases registered in Farang Deaths' database. Please note that this is not an accurate statistic regarding deaths of foreigners in Thailand"

 

Even using their own self-admittedly inaccurate figures, there have only been 16 deaths this year (164 days), so all you seem to have categorically proved that "a tourist or two" does not die unexpectedly each day as he claimed!

 

I am aware the website does not claim to be definitive. However, it certainly proves that a substantial number of foreigners meet their maker prematurely in Thailand - often in very unpleasant ways.

 

Unfortunately, Thailand does not publish figures - even assuming it bothers to keep them - showing the incidence of unexpected deaths among expats and visitors. British government stats reveal more than 750 Brits died in Thailand (cause of death not stated) between April 2012 to April 2014.

30'ish million people a year holiday in Thailand, very many of them are of an age where they might croak from natural causes. They just croak in Thailand rather than Bristol or Munich, or wherever they come from. Add to that the fact that some might be living more unhealthy lifestyles in Thailand than they might do if they were in their home countries.

RIP to this guy, too young.

And Spain has more than 80 million tourists a year not to mention the many thousands of ex-pats that will be "of an age".  All tourist focussed countries have their fair share of tourist deaths but some have more "questionable" ones than others and Thailand rates highly on that scale.

would poisoning be evident ... ?   when any death occurs one must investigate all possible theories thereby eliminating any and all suspects.

Normal police procedure with any death ....   just saying .
