Australian tourist found dead in Phuket hotel room

PHUKET: -- An Australian tourist was found dead in his hotel room in Chalong yesterday afternoon, apparently the victim of a health problem.


Staff at the Happy Cottages Phuket on Soi Ta-ied found Adam Arthur Sahyoun, 31, dead, lying face-own on the floor at about 4:45pm, and called police.

Mr Sahyoun arrived in Phuket on July 5 and was due to fly home on August 5. He was estimated to weigh about 200 kilos, and medication and syringes found in the room indicated he was suffering from hyperinsulinemia, a condition closely linked with obesity with can lead to cardiovascular disease.

Investigators believe that he had been dead for about eight hours when he was found.

To die at 31 is a very sad thing indeed. Thoughts to his family; it could have been any of us if life had been a little different.

No it couldn't. Most people would never allow themselves to get that big.

I think it's fair to respectfully suggest that no one actually chooses to "get that big" More often than not it is down to genetics, illness or some other condition/affliction.

Commiserations and condolences to his family and friends, to have a weight problem like that could well be devastating with a normal life probably out of the question. Not a good way to go and very regrettable, hopefully the subsequent comments and posts that we will no doubt see here are made with some care and consideration for the relatives that may well see them.

Very sad reading...

Obesity is a serious problem in western countries...especially the younger generations...does not bode well for their future...health problems galore to look forward to...sad state of affairs...

No, there is only a small percentage that occurs through illness the rest is eating too much and no sports.

Still is very sad to go at that age.
