Kathu Police Capt Yingyong Chuoykij told The Phuket News today (Feb 9) that the incident happened at the end of Bangla Rd where there are no CCTVs. However, he did confirm that officers who were stationed close to the area at the time went to help the man and called an ambulance.

Meanwhile, Maj Nucharee Longkaew from Phuket City Police said, “The man had a big wound to the back of his head, but he had no identification on him. Rescue workers said witnesses told them that the victim fell on the road and hit his head at around 11pm.

“The man was taken to hospital because his head was injured and he was bleeding from his ear. There were no signs of assault or other injuries on the body .”

A representative from Vachira Hospital who asked not to be named also told The Phuket News that the unidentified foreign man was aged between 40-50 years old, and believed to be of European nationality. He had initially been admitted to Patong Hospital due to his head injury. However, he was transferred to Vachira at 1:20am on Sunday (Feb 7) due to the severity of the injury. He died the next day.


“Maybe someone out there can tell us who he is so we can contact his family,” the representative said.

“The body is being held at Vachira Hospital and we’ve notified Kathu Police and the tourist rescue centre in the hope they can help us identify the man,”she added.

Police have confirmed they are continuing to investigate the incident and hope they are able to find out more information on the man.

Should you be able to provide any information on this man please contact Vachira Hospital on 076 361 236 or Kathu Police on 076 342 719.
