CHAING MAI: -- Police in Chiang Mai think a German man killed himself by locking himself in a toilet at his house and lighting a charcoal burner.

 

Charter Michael Brandt (name transliterated from Thai), 48, was found lying next to the toilet bowl in a downstairs bathroom at his rented house in Sukkasem Road Soi 4 on Tuesday, reported Thai Rath.

 

Medics ascertained that due to the level of decomposition of the body he had been dead at least five days.

 

Near the body was a charcoal burner and ashes. The fire had long since gone out.

 

There was no sign of a struggle. the victim was wearing just a pair of black shorts.

 

Neighbors said they noticed a foul smell coming from the house and a lot of flies. The victim had not been seen for many days and lived alone.

 

Police investigating believe he committed suicide by smoke inhalation from the burner.

 

The body was sent for autopsy while the German embassy and relatives were contacted.

In this instance, it was the fumes that caused the danger, rather than the toilet cubicle itself

Not uncommon but it's not as painless as some internet pages advice.

yes but that article gives a completely distorted and incomplete perspective because anyone who chooses that way to go shouldn't simply sit there and endure the slow buildup of CO gas like a frog in boiling water. If you enter a confined environment which has at least 12,600 parts per million CO gas, you will die within three minutes and it won't be as bad as that guy described in the article.

In a toilet, it may not have been the charcoal fumes that got him.
