After drinking problems, man found hanged in Srisoonthorn

PHUKET: A 41-year-old man whose problems with drinking had resulted in him being suspended from work was found hanged at his home in Srisoonthorn soon after leaving a drinking session with his friends last night (June 29).

Thalang Police Deputy Chief of Investigation Lt Col Pongpipat Kamchomphu was notified of the incident at 10:40pm.

Police officers along with Kusoldharm rescue workers and an EMS medical team arrived at the man’s home in Moo 2, Srisoonthorn, to find the body of Noppadol Intana, dressed only in black sports shorts, hanged by a nylon cord tied to a beam for security bars on the front window.

It was estimated that he had died less than two hours before the medical team and officers arrived.

Police were told that Mr Noppadol had been living in the rented house for about a year after he moved there with his wife and two sons.

Last night he had been drinking lao khao (fortified Thai rice wine) with neighbours at his wife’s small restaurant near the house. After he appeared to have become quite drunk, he left the group to return home.

His fellow drinkers later walked past and through the window saw his body hanging by the cord. They rushed into the home to help him, but were unable to revive him and called police for help, officers reported.

Police were told that Mr Noppadol had been suspended by his employer for working while drunk. He had driven the employer’s car and crashed into other people’s cars.

Police have yet to conclude their investigation, but at this stage it appears Mr Noppadol’s death is understood uncontested as a suicide.

Police did note they will make arrangements for his body to be released to his family so that his funeral may be held.

@DeKaaskopf: thats the main problem. K never ever will see his own problem because he is thinking he knows everything better, can do everything better and he is the best.  All the others are more ore less useless, lazy and stupid.

@Kurt    "Forget lord Buddha teaching ?" Do you really need to comment on every article with a suggestion/solution ? Nothing better to do ? Looking after your own problems would be a start.

May He Rest in Peace. This man had a heavy drinking problem, not started last week. Not understand why his employer not took action for AA help for him after he driven his car and crashed into other people's cars, but just fired him. It is not forbidden to feel/share responsble for friend's/employee's well being and help were you can. Forget Lord Buddha teaching?
