Policeman faints, dies

PHUKET CITY: A traffic police officer from Phuket City Police Station died on September 22, three days after accidentally fracturing his skull.

The officer, Sq Ldr Sr Sgt Maj Wisit Wisetsuwan, 48, collapsed and hit his head on the parking lot pavement in front of the police station while taking a man to recover his motorcycle from Phuket City Police Station.

Officers rushed him to Vachira Phuket Hospital, where doctors tried in vain to save his life.

Pol Maj Teerawat Leamsuwan, a Traffic Inspector at Phuket City Police Station, said, “After he fainted, other officers took him to hospital. Surgeons operated on his head and found that he had had a brain hemorrhage. After three days in hospital, he died.

“He was a very responsible officer and in good health. We will have to wait for the results of the autopsy before we know why he collapsed. I never thought he would die so suddenly. Now his body is at Mongkol Nimitr temple awaiting funeral rites.”
