Pattaya, the 1st of February 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Officers of the Sawang Prateep Rescue team were called to an incident, in the early hours of Monday morning, involving a Thai man attempting to commit suicide by setting fire to his clothes. Rescue officers arrived at the scene to find the severely burnt body of Mr. Weeraohan Ammarin [36] lying in front of his residence. Mr. Ammarin was rushed immediately to the Aw Udom Hospital for treatment.

 

Mr. Ammarin had set fire to himself in anger over a break-up with his girlfriend of one year; he had suffered severe burns to his face, neck and most of his upper body. Upon arrival at the Aw Udom Hospital medical personnel stated that his injuries were too serious to adequately treat there, immediately transferring him to the better equipped Chon-Buri Hospital.

A team of police arrived at the scene and interrogated Mr. Jetsada Ammarin [30], the brother of Mr. Ammarin. Mr. Jetsada explained to police that his brother had been drinking with his neighbours when he became severely depressed over the recent break-up with his girlfriend Miss Plern [22]. Mr. Jetsada further revealed that a recent quarrel between the couple had resulted in Miss Plern leaving Mr. Ammarin to stay with a friend, as she did not want to continue with their unhappy relationship.

 

Allegedly Mr. Ammarin, whilst severely intoxicated went to purchase a gallon of gasoline which he proceeded to pour over his body and ignite. Mr. Jetsada along with neighbours helped to extinguish the fire, saving Mr. Ammarin’s life, before calling rescue officers to transport him to the hospital for treatment.

Mr. Jetsada added in his statement that he had been aware that his brother was still in love with his ex-girlfriend but did not consider that he was able to take his own life over their recent break-up.
