A Swiss national was saved from an apparent suicide attempt when he was discovered with two open gas cylinders in his car in South Pattaya.

Hans Rudolf Mueller, 60, was pulled from the driver’s seat of his silver Chevrolet Captiva Oct. 13 in the Tesco-Lotus supermarket parking lot.

Salicha Donratvorawong, a friend of the family, said Mueller left his Siam Country Club home the night before. He followed the Swiss man by motorbike, concerned as he’d been depressed and was known to have a heart problem.
