British expat dies of apparent fall at home


A British expat died after apparently falling and hitting his head on a glass table in his central Pattaya apartment.

The body of Brian Herbert, 72, was found April 9 at the Ruay Samer Apartments on Soi Chalermphrakiat 23. He’d been dead for about five hours after suffering a severe skull fracture. A smashed glass table was the only sign of disturbance in the room.

Apartment owner Samruay Thongnak, 67, said Herbert had been living there for six years and drank often.

Herbert’s friend, Phil Robinson, found the body after calling on the dead man, but getting no answer to the door.
