Russian found dead in Phuket resort pool

PHUKET: A 38-year-old Russian man was found dead in a Phuket resort swimming pool early this morning.

Royal Crown Hotel & Palm Spa Resort staffers informed Patong police of the death at 4:30am.

Police and Kusoldharm rescue workers arrived at the scene to find the man floating face down in the pool.

“He was only wearing swimming trunks, and there was a bottle of liquor at the bottom of the pool,” Lt Col Jongserm Preecha of the Patong Police said.

“There were no signs of physical assault to his body,” Lt Col Jongserm said.

The body was transported to Patong Hospital to determine cause of death.

The Phuket Gazette is withholding the victim’s name until confirming that next of kin have been notified of his death.
