Staff at Vachira Hospital confirmed to the Phuket Gazette late this morning that the German has a blood clot in his brain and is in the intensive care unit (ICU), on life support with a feeding tube.

Inside the man’s room, Police found an unaddressed letter which said, “I am dead; come with me to paradise. I love you with all my heart. Kiss…”

The Gazette is withholding the name of the man until relatives or next of kin have been informed.
