Somchai Singkhorn a football lover was ‘electrocuted by the handset’ as he watched a match on the phone with the charger plugged in.
A chef from Thailand Somchai Singkhom 40 was last seen on Tuesday night laying on his mattress with a can of beer while watching football on his phone with his headphones plugged in.
The next morning, he was found dead in his room in Samut Prakan with burn marks on his arm and neck. Somchai’s phone was said to be plugged when they found him and his earphones were resting across his arm, face, and neck.
His roommate, Saeng, 28, initially thought he was sick and then called his boss to inform him about the situation until he later discovered that Somchai was actually dead.
Saeng said: ‘I went to wake him up but he was not moving, so I [was] worried that he might be ill. I contacted our employer but when he came to check, he told me that Somchai was dead.’
According to Saeng, he claimed his friend always stayed up to listen to music or watching football on his phone before he went to bed.
He said: ‘Somchai Singkhorn always stays up late concentrating on his phone before he sleeps. Last night when I last saw him alive he was doing that, the same as other nights. He was watching football.’
When police arrived at the scene, they found cans of beer and Coca Cola at the deceased’s feet.
