Man dies after some Tom Yam Kai gets stuck in his windpipe

Picture: Thai Rath

 

A 52 year old man in a food shack in front of a camp for workers in Sri Racha startled his relatives as he got to his feet and began staggering about.

 

He had got a piece of Tom Yam Kai stuck in his throat.

 

Emergency medics were called late last night but he had already passed out and had no pulse.

 

CPR failed to revive him and Thanawat Petchdamrong was pronounced dead in Somdej Phraboromratchathewi hospital.

 

The camp is situated behind the temple of Wat Bor Hin in Surasak sub-district.

 

Sri Racha police are investigating and have sent the body for autopsy.

 

Thai Rath did not report if anyone present at the meal had tried to perform the Heimlich Maneuver.

I just asked the other half about this only to be met by a blank look. Sadly these things do not seem to be taught or promulgated to the public here.

Sad day for someone

R.I.P.

A sad way to die.

 

Fishbone, chicken bone...

If you want to avoid these risks stick to applesauce :wink:

I suspect you'd get the same reaction from most falangs. Hopefully, never have to find out the hard way!

Would be interesting to know how many members can  do a proper Heimlich maneuver. At least I knew the name from some TV report.

When I eat fish or Tom Yam Kai (I love it) I am extra careful because I don't expect much help from first aid.

A bit off-topic: another reminder not to feed chicken bones to dogs.

The problem with this meal from a food stall is, that the chicken is often senselessly chopped in small pieces with spiky bones.

Won't happen at home where the daughter cuts it properly with a knife.

And how many died from a chicken drumstick, chicken wing?

I reckon it was probably a sort of anaphylactic reaction?

maybe a som tam from a region he's not used to...

 

with a mrs that knows many women from different places, these women make it like how it's done by their respective mummy,

from wherever home is...

 

which sort of comes out in what seems to be a random thing, until one sees a pattern, linked to what province the 'cook'  visited from.

Happens to me now and then... though luckily it is only a whooping bad hiccups in lieu of, the big one!

Serious?

Is it still not clear that it is about a hot and sour soup with chicken?

Official transcript "kai", k like in "sky". Often written as "gai".

Egg: "khai".

 

The poor guy died from a piece of chicken bone similar to suffocating from fishbone.

Not to be confused with the Half Nelson.
