Disabled Briton dies in apparent bathroom fall


A disabled Briton died after apparently falling in his Jomtien Beach bathroom.

The body of Alan John, 66, was found by staff at the View Talay 6 condominium complex Feb. 20. Lying next to his wheelchair, John had been dead approximately four days.

The body was discovered by cleaning crews that detected a strong smell coming from John’s condo. There was no evidence of robbery, fight or other disturbance.

The body was sent to the Forensic Institute to determine exact cause of death and the British Embassy was informed.
