An Australian expatriate was killed in Nong Khai on Saturday, an online forum reported.

Don Spence, who was well connected to the local expat scene, was involved in a motorcycle accident on Saturday night. With life-threatening injuries, he was rushed to Nong Khai Wattana Hospital where he succumbed to his severe injuries.
The death was reported by a user of the Udon Thani Forum at udonmap.com. “A great mate to a lot of us and he will be sadly missed,” he said. Another user said: “Don was a wonderful, decent and trustworthy man, and loved by many.”

Chen Yufan



A Chinese motorcycle rider died, and his female riding pillion was severely injured when their Honda CBR 650 crashed through the wall of an abandoned house inPhuket.

After being notified of the accident, Pol Lt Col Somnuek Damgaeo from KamalaProvincial Police Station and rescue workers arrived at the crash site located in Kamala subdistrict. “It was really dark, and we had to use flashlights to search for them. We found them lying on the ground about 25 meters from a bend in the road,” Pol Lt Col Somnuek said.

In an overgrown ditch behind an abandoned house, they discovered the body of Chen Yufan, 23, who was already dead, and his 27-year-old riding pillion Dai Tao, both Chinese. With severe injuries to the head, she was immediately rushed to PatongHospital and later transferred to Phuket Hospital.

Not far from the couple was a badly damaged black Honda CBR 650cc that was snapped in two by the force of the collision. The investigation found out that the two had rented the motorcycle from a shop and had been cruising around Phuket on the day of the accident.

Police concluded that, as they were riding back to their hotel, must have skidded in a curve and lost control of the motorcycle. It then crashed through the wall of the abandoned house, violently throwing both riders off into the ditch.

The couple had been in Phuket as tourists and were staying at the Baan Laimai Beach Resort in Patong subdistrict since June 17. They were due to check out on the day of the accident. Police will further investigate the fatal crash.

Changai Doji



Bangkok police are investigating the bizarre death of a Bhutanese national who died from electrocution while climbing over the fence surrounding his house early Monday morning.

Investigators and police officers from Wang Thong Lang Police Station were called to the scene after a resident discovered the dead body of a middle-aged man slammed over the fence of a domicile in Bangkok’s Wang Thong Lang district.

Deputy investigator Pol Capt Udom Wanwet and Wang Thong Lang superintendent Pol Col Thammanun Bungrueang went to investigate the scene. When they arrived in Soi Pradit Manutham 3, they discovered the body of Changai Doji, aged 48 years, slammed over the iron fence surrounding his house.

Mr Doji, who Pol Capt Udom found out worked as a Finance Officer at the Bhutanese Embassy, was wearing a t-shirt and shorts and was lying face down on top of the spiked iron fence. His left arm showed signs of a burn. Police concluded that the wound was caused by electricity flowing through the metal which also killed Mr Doji when he tried leaving his property.

Before his unfortunate death, Mr Doji reportedly hired a security guard of the gated community he was staying at with his friend to make a withdrawal at a nearby bank. When we patrolled the area as usual at midnight, he saw the man stuck in the fence who had already died.

Police confirmed Mr Doji died of electrocution. However, they are yet to interview his friend and roommate who had been in the house throughout the incident. Officers will view CCTV footage from the area to try to understand why the man had climbed over his fence.
