Nasty stuff - can't stand it but love most other Thai food. Needless to say the missus and all love it , nay are addicted to it and the tok,tok,tok of the preparation. Shouldn't knock it for it always comes out top when the recurring thread of what has Thailand ever invented comes up. RIP to the poor fella - autopsy report - cause of death - Som Tam.

I think it is far more likely to be simple choking. Quick application of the Heimlich manouver may well have made the difference.

Reasons?

1.He was thai and familiar with som tum. no one else in the household suffered

2. 'whacked on the back and noodles flew out'

3. 'started gagging.'

 

I don't think Thais are familiar with the "Heimlich maneuver"  even in Pattaya you might get a strange look !

Sadly, people die every day. I'm not sure what makes this case newsworthy.

 

Maybe it supports the Juntas move to shut down street food.

The missus looks fit in her kinky boots and white nightie.

Not surprised at all. My ex girlfriend studied hotel and catering "management" at http://a-tech.aksorn.ac.th/2014aksorn/. Yet in those 3-4 years she had not learned to wash hands before starting to cook. Once after having stomach problems and feeling sick for several days I found a 3 week old pack of ground pork in the vegetable box of the fridge and tried to start a discussion of bacteria and germs with her.. I could have as well been speaking Greek to her, there was just this normal "yes darling, I understand" smile on her face that the Thais do when they are

- too lazy to think

- too busy updating their social media profiles or watching their favourite soap operas on TV

- too drunk after having too many glasses of lousy "whiskey" diluted with soda

 

Which is often, I would say in 99% of everyday life situations.

I would suspect the fish was bad and severe salmonella had developed.

Possibly dirty utensils, and dirty mortar and pestle. 

His stomach had an immediate reaction similar to a poison being taken ....

He would not have had much chance even if they have minor first aid training.

The patient would require a dose of salty water to induce vomiting immediately

I had to laugh when I read this. 

Salmonella, or any food poisoning are not going to produce instant death. Salmonella would take a minimum of 6 hours.  Nope …. That leaves a pre existing condition; heart attack, stroke, or something else. That something else can indeed be some “condiment” added to the Som Tom. Uh oh, oh no. Oh Yes!

TV Johnny detective squad assemble! You have work to do.
