Thai wife says five paracetamol killed British husband

BANGKOK: -- A Surin wife told police she believed that five paracetamol and a glass of orange juice killed her healthy British husband.

 

Police who arrived at a house in Ban Yayam village in Sikhoraphum district of Surin found 52 year old Neil Curtis sprawled on the ground by a hammock.

 

He was dressed only in shorts and there were no signs of injury.

 

He was already dead.

 

His distraught wife Nattha Bunjan, 45, told investigators that they had lived together for two years tending cattle and growing rice on 15 rai of land.

 

Her husband had just been to feed grass to the cows yesterday and returned home to have a rest. He complained of a headache and took five paracetamol washed down with some orange juice.

 

Then he lay down on his hammock. Within moments she said that he fell off the hammock. She ran and tried to raise him up as he beat his chest with his fist saying that he had chest pains.

 

He passed out dead in her arms almost immediately and she called police.

 

In tears Nattha told the officers that her husband was a very healthy man who had no illnesses. The last time he saw a doctor was over a year and a half ago.

 

She blamed the paracetamol and orange juice.

 

Daily News did not report any other details.

First taking 5 paracetamol is foolish. Secondly if he was a drinker, 5 pills could have seriously compromised an already stressed liver. This is well documented with this common painkiller. Read the label folks and don't be stupid.

who knows, when your time is up, it's up....

A bit young, but I agree with your sentiments. When I go I hope it's this way - quick. Regarding the wife - just hope his affairs were in order,  with a will made, etc.. That's one potential disadvantage of a quick, unexpected death.

 

Five paracetamol is a bit much but isn't enough to cause death by overdose, so probably some kind of heart problem. Wonder if taking aspirin, as opposed to paracetamol, might've made a difference; I actually carry aspirin on me for just this sort of eventuality.

 

Also, probably didn't know he had a problem, relatively younger older guys (40s/50s) can tend to ignore health till there's some obvious symptom. I only found out about high BP in my 50s when I had some some dental work done.

Surely the headache that prompted him to take 5 paracetamol should be an indication that something was going wrong before he took the tablets.

Really, good point - if you have a headache something is wrong, people seem to take legal drugs like smarties these days! Personally I have no trust in "drug" companies, the $ is #1 for them! I have taken pain killers maybe 2 or 3 times in my life and I'm no spring chicken, seems the medical industry has convinced people they can't live without them now to the extent people worry about being near to a hospital as they consider it inevitable they will get sick! Modern life :shock1:

He felt a headache BEFORE he took the medicine.

My mother died at age 44 from a major blood artery problem in her brain.

She passed out giving my 5 year old younger brother a bath.

She latterly fell dead on top of my brother.

She was quite overweight.

Such things occur.
