PHUKET: -- An Australian man died at Patong Hospital about 9am today, shortly after he was admitted there unconscious following a heart attack.

Ryan John Scerri, 32, had been checked in at the Andaman Embrace Resort & Spa in Patong since October 13, and was scheduled to check out on October 23. He was staying there with a Canadian woman named Oiman Lai, 37.

“According to Ms Lai, Mr Scerri told her he was experiencing chest pains and having difficulty breathing at about 7am. She said she called out to him, but he fell unconscious,” said Maj Pattapee Srichai of Patong Police.

32 or 37, either way at that age I'd be slow to rule out the possibility that it may have been other than a heart attack.

 

Could just as easily been a reaction to a pesticide or some other chemical exposure through eating, drinking or contact exposure.

So, if it were your brother, you'd be satisfied with a cause of death that came out before any investigation at all?

 

Google Canadian sisters dead in Thailand, and then come back and tell us...

It would depend on his medical history and life style. Heart attacks aren't unheard of at that age.

 

The Canadian girls had a completely different set of symptoms. Nothing that could be constued as a heart attack.

You do know that 10% of all reported heart attacks occur before the age of 40 right?

with the sheer amount of morbidly obese and overweight people living here on visas I am surprised this is not a daily story.

I see you didn't join TV long enough to know that NO foreigner dies from natural causes in Thailand.

Well not actually sure what you say or suggest is a fact

 

Around 30-35 some people die due to the fact that the 1.000.000 (one million) heartbeats barrier have been past. And the human are for as so far I can recall the only species who have a heart that is able to beat past this limit.

Sure.  I would agree that one likely cause was a heart attack.  But announcing that it was a heart attack before any investigation at all paints the BIB into a corner.  

 

If they investigate and have to announce it was something else, they lose face.  So how thoroughly do you figure they'll investigate?  

 

And if the hospital's autopsy (if any) contradicts the BIB, that pits the hospital staff against the BIB's reputation.  Not much incentive even for them to do a diligent autopsy.

 

The appropriate announcement would have been death from unknown causes, until the autopsy and investigation.  But that never seems to happen here.

It would appear to be a straightforward case of death by heart attack.  However in the land of smoke and mirrors all the theorists will be speculating away.  Whatever the cause of death a man has died whilst on holiday with his girlfriend.  He will no doubt have close relatives who will be devastated and sympathy should go out to them
