An elderly British man was found dead in the early hours of Wednesday inside a movie theatre at a Pattaya shopping mall, police said.

 

The Pattaya police station was alerted at 12.30am that a foreigner had been found dead after the screening of horror movie “Annabelle Comes Home” in Cinema 4 of a South Pattaya shopping mall in Tambon Nong Prue of Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district.

 

Police said the man was identified as Bernard Wilfred Channing, 78. He had been sitting next to a Thai movie goer who did not realise the man had died until the lights went up. 

 

Staff at the cinema said the Briton had bought a single ticket and appeared to be alone. 

 

The body was sent to the Bang Lamung Hospital for autopsy and the British Embassy would be informed to contact his relatives.

I wonder what the film was?

 

edit: Just noticed vehicle in the photo. They're not using EMS to send corpses to the morgue are they?

 

No. It's worse than that.

The body was probably taken to hospital first so a doctor can certify death. The death certificate is an important bit of paper to get before cremation, burial or repatriation of the remains can commence.

Either a very scary movie or very cold in there. 

Seems a sad end.

Oh, I don't know!

 

Maybe he went and had something to eat, a few beers and then a nice movie just to finish the day off.

 

No fuss, just slipped away while relaxing, sounds good to me 🙂

At least he was in a place where his body was found quickly. Not like those who drift away in their condo rooms and are only discovered when a strange smell starts to permeate the whole floor. RIP.

Upon reading the headline, I was going to say "everyone's a critic", but then thought that would be insensitive, so I won't. 😋

 

RIP old fella. Hope you had a good life.

Actually in the UK: First a Healthcare Professional will issue a note (certificate) verifying death.

Then a doctor or coroner will issue another determining cause of death.

Then the death has to be registered for public records, often it is a certified copy of the registry that is known as a Death Certificate.

Then for Cremation a further certificates signed by two doctors is required.
