He suffered broken limbs and a ruptured stomach wound.

Pattaya City Police Station Deputy Inspector General Amornthep Petchtim reported they aren’t treating the tourist’s death as suspicious.

Gen Amornthep added there was no signs of a struggle inside his hotel room.

“Searching inside his room, there was the deceased’s passport and one suitcase inside the room.”

Authorities have informed the Australian Embassy in Bangkok, where consular staff will contact the man’s relatives.

The View Talay 6 is a three star hotel located in the heart of the city on Thailand’s east coast and only a metres away from Central Pattaya Beach.
