Video: Elderly Briton found dead in Pattaya movie theatre

Recommended Posts

I'm in my 70's and have lived permanently in LOS for 14 years. During this time I've attended many cremations of close, and not so close friends. most of whom were in their late 70's and 80's. Despite the fact that several died in hospital after spending more than a month under medical supervision, a post-mortem was carried out on all of them. In each case the the top of the skull was removed and then clumsily replaced, subjecting the widow/family to great distress, delayed cremation and additional expense. (about 10,000bht)

I know of one 98 year old gentleman,  with a recent hospital record of ill health who surprisingly died at home of 'old age'. Despite the pleas/protestations of his family he was subjected to the same macabre post-mortem.

Maybe the cash registers start ringing when a farang dies, regardless of the feelings of the deceased's family! I can't think of any other reason other than to find out what a non-Thai educated brain looks like!

I'm pretty sure with the UK that's it's a requirement by the embassy when a foreign national dies abroad there's a post mortem. Perhaps the same with other embassies?

I hope he finished his popcorn. He must have had either his passport or Thai driver's license on him to identify him so quickly. At least he was comfortable in his last moments....but maybe the movie was really bad and that did him in. Why would you go to see a horror movie at his age? A bit odd.

Exactly, clearly suicide by fright.

 

RIP

it's sad enough to go to movies alone

No it is not.

Sad is sitting in a bar alone staring out into nothingness...

Well, we all got to go sometime and slipping away during a movie is as good as it gets. Condolences to his family and friends.

Either a very scary movie or very cold in there. 

Seems a sad end.

You're right it was always ridiculously cold in that cinema my misses would bring a blanket... I would dread the time we forgot the blanket it was like an arctic breeze blowing over you

I’ve lived here for a number of years also and seen a few old friends passing on. Three who where under doctors care at home or in hospital did not undergo post mortems. Two who died suddenly did undergo post mortoms, however I don’t remember any issue with the skull when I seen them in the coffins.

Need to ban these horror movies they kill people 😂 but on a serious note RIP

Don't worry. Give the gov a week or 2 to confirm he was scared to death. They will then step in and make a country wide ban on all horror flicks for the safety of the people and their tourists.

Movie title. Saving Private Lek??

I've never heard of a farang dying in a theatre in LOS.

He's the first.
