A rescuer prays for the dead man beside a Rawai pool today

Russian Man's Body Found By Maid in Pool at Phuket Villa

Monday, September 28, 2015
PHUKET: The body of a 65-year-old Russian man was found floating in a swimming pool at a villa on Phuket today.

The maid - gardener is also employed at the property - discovered her boss in the water about 9.30am and called for help.

The man, dressed in black swim trunks, was found to be dead when Phuket Ruamjai rescuers pulled him out from the pool at the villa in Rawai, a southern Phuket destination.

Officers from Chalong Police Station investigated and were not able to draw conclusions about what may have caused the man's death.

An examination by doctors at Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket City should be able to determine whether he drowned.

The Russian was staying with his daughter who was not at the villa at the time, police said. It's not known whether the pair were tourists or residents.

Phuketwanhas the man's name but is withholding publication until relatives have been notified.

RIP - Autopsy should be mandatory for foreigners as they bring in huge revenue for Phuket. Too many seem to die from heart attacks.

Good that the police have refrained from guessing at a cause of death

Much better approach than the usual speculation. Very positive - well done
