On July 16, medics were called to the Gran Niran Condo in Central Pattaya where they found the lifeless body of Icelander Einar B Gudjonsson, 75.

He, too, had been in bed when he suffered a heart attack. His girlfriend of three months, Sunee Thongsamlit, 47 of Nakhon Pathom, said he had chest pains out of the blue.
