Thai media 77kaoded quoted the director of Somdet Phrayupharat Hospital in Sa Kaeo as saying that the American man who escaped from a Pattaya court was not yet dead
 
The media mentioned "Coma!!" in their headline. 
 
Dr Phuwadon Kittiwattanasan said that Bart Allen Helmus was in a critical condition at 3.30 am but was still on a respirator. 
 
His wife was also in a serious condition after he apparently shot her in the forehead. 
 
ER staff confirmed to the media around 4 am that the American was still alive, but barely. His heart was still pumping, they said.

Earlier Thai media reported that he was already dead. 
 
The truth seems to be that after five hours in such a critical condition he would be presumed dead and life support would be turned off, notes Thaivisa. 
 
77kaoded contradicted and added to previous reports about the couple's capture. They said the American fired at the police twice with a BB gun adapted to be a 9 mm. 
 
He then was reported as shooting his wife Sirinpha in the forehead. Earlier reports suggested she was only slightly wounded, now she is in a grievous condition according to the director of the hospital. 
 
Following shooting his wife the American turned the gun on himself, shooting to the head said 77kaoded.

How can you believe any news article here anymore?

His wife is in custody, no shes not, he just shot her.

He shot himself, hes dead, no hes not, the truth is out there somewhere, but who knows what the truth is?

im no expert but typically the auto bb's cant be adapted to 9mm? usually a bb revolver would work but typically just modified for .22 because easier and also can use smooth bores and such... (im not involved in any illegal activity just talk from thais....(that are all good))

Must have been mistaken? Thought it was her sitting in the back of a police pickup yesterday being taken away. Didn't look critically injured then.

Is that the case for all patients of just on the run fugitives?

Can that be done {the adaption that is, I'm sure that it was possible to shoot at the BIB. Not advisable, but possible}?

Great. And here they will use this against us good guys because he can't pay his hospital bill.

Yeah, disgusting that they took this guy into hospital while many hospitals are giving so many other people grief about insurance before treatment.  Maybe the Police up front agreed to pay the bill?  Yeah and I got some fine marshland here in Florida for sale

It can be done if one owns a machine shop!  He may have just re-used the barrel, opened up the end where the BB would come out.  At the trigger end, well, somehow install a firing pin.  Might be a one shot Saturday night special, with a simple spring loaded pin, and not a real trigger.  No clip, no magazine, barely a simple chamber to put the one bullet in.  I have seen some pretty simple single shot guns that people makeshift together.  But reading another post I see he allegedly fired 5 or 6 shots.  So pretty much no idea what is what!

What a reporting debacle, do any "journalists" on any outlet do fact checking with appointed spokespeople for police or medical services? No wonder news articles are treated with some scepticism.

Do journalists in Thailand have qualifications?
