His death will be investigated by police and added to the updating list of expat deaths on Phuket.
The list that will be presented to Phuket's honorary consuls on Monday contains 25 names of expats who have been unfortunate enough to meet their end on the tropical holiday island since the honorary consuls met in November.
There may be other deaths - the list merely records those deaths in which the police have played a role as investigators.
Over the past two years, the list has been compiled by Phuket Police Commander Major General Pekad Tantipong and now for the first time by his successor, Major General Chonsit Wadhnawarangkun.
Phuket's lists of dead are not intended to be cheerful but the compilation at least has the virtue of letting people know cases in which police have been involved and the official causes of death.
