A Swedish man has been found dead the swimming pool of Koh Chang hotel.

 

Police and rescue workers were called to the hotel just after 5am on Saturday morning after staff had discovered the body of a foreign man floating in the swimming pool.

 

The man, named as Carl Magnus Philip Bergqvist, 24, had not been a guest at the hotel but was seen with two other foreigners swimming in the pool in the early hours of Saturday morning, Thairath reported.

 

The member of staff who saw the three men swimming in the pool told Thairath the three men “seemed to be drunk”.

 

The same staff member then returned to the pool area at around 5am when he saw the body of Mr Bergqvist floating in the pool.

 

Police said an initial examination of the body showed no sign of injuries. Officers believed he may have suffered from cramp and subsequently drowned.

 

Mr Bergqvist had been dead for between two or three hours before his body was found.

 

Police said they will question the two friends who were with him before he died.

 

Mr Bergqvist’s body has been sent to Koh Chang hospital for autopsy. The Swedish embassy and Mr Bergqvist’s family have been informed.

Is not the pool closed at those hours? Did stupid behavior lead to his own death?

generally there is a closing time for the pool and even stranger is the fact that the three were noticed to be drunk and yet were not ordered out of the pool.

hmm....maybe more than "cramp".... the autopsy will tell all. The circumstances are a little odd, but these days anything is possible ?

Handily for the hotel owners, the only reported information on what happened shifts the blame on to the victim and his irresponsibility. This is a recurring theme in Thailand and the Thai press. Downtown Inn and all that.

His two friends maybe hold the key to this? What about security cameras? Lighting around the pool? Young man tragic waste of life. People come to Thailand and go crazy stupid.

Had the staff member been doing their job this might not have happened. I know...they were avoiding confrontation, however I do hope someone points this out to them so they learn but that's highly unlikely.

Where are all the TVF Detectives.  I'd thought they be all over the case by now.  We're waiting in anticipation of them solving the matter within a couple of days and without any access to the crime scene or evidence.  Come on boys, a bit slow of the mark this time.:wai:
