Pattaya police found Michael Richard Foster hanging from a pillar in his South Pattaya home. His wheelchair was tipped on its side.

A New Zealand man who attempted suicide several times finally succeeded when his wife and daughter left the house.

Mr. Foster, 61, was found hanging from a pillar in his South Pattaya house Oct. 16. His wheelchair was tipped on its side.



Wife Ubon, 48, told police that her husband was unable to walk due to medical problems. She said he had unsuccessfully tried to kill himself several times, but she and her daughter always prevented him from doing so.

This time he waited until they went out.
