Elderly worker found dead amid Lop Buri chill


An elderly Khon Kaen man living in Lop Buri who apparently died in his sleep on Friday morning may have succumbed to the cold as the temperature dropped to 19 degrees Celsius.

Thongbai Phota, 71, was found dead in his room in workers’ quarters at a recycling plant in Pattana Nikhom district.
He was shirtless and had not used a blanket.
The owner of the plant called police at 8.30am after finding Thongbai, who he said was due to resume his duties as a truck driver shortly after 7am.
A doctor determined he’d been dead for five or six hours.
The body was sent to the district hospital for an autopsy.
