Police confirmed that the man had gone home with the bar owner, whom he met on Soi Paradise at about 1:30am.

"The bar owner and the man were having intercourse for about 15 minutes when the foreigner fell unconscious,” said Lt Col Weerapong Rakhito of the Patong Police.

The bar owner called the hospital for help and performed cardiovascular resuscitation (CPR) until rescue workers arrived.

“Rescue workers were unable to revive the man,” Col Weerapong said. “We found no signs of a struggle in the room, and believe he may have suffered a heart attack, as he was fitted with a pacemaker.”
Notning sad about going like this...in fact it makes my top 10 list!

A heart attack whilst bonking some exotic chick, on my boat, anchored up in a foreign harbour. A very very pleasant way to die I'm thinking. Certainly beats watching the day time soaps at the rest home.

Re: What a sad way to go !

I hope the guy died of a silent heart attack living his dream. Nothing sad about that.

Re: What a sad way to go !

These are two separate stories. This is the second such discovery on a yacht in the past couple of months here… but there are many older yachties here, and plenty of boozing. Not so surprising really. Nai Harn is one of the best anchorages in the Phuket area, as longtails and jetskis are banned, so rather peaceful. You can actually swim without fear of decapitation, and there is a nice wee dock and "yacht club" (in fact just a bar and restaurant).

I guess it's sad if someone has been dead for over a week, and nobody has missed him, or knows who he is...
