Young Hong Kong Millionaire Tourist Dies After Five-Star Pool Incident

Young Hong Kong millionaire Manhoe Lai died on Tuesday morning at Bangkok Hospital Phuket after being pulled from a swimming pool at a five-star Phuket resort. His parents have flown to Phuket. An autopsy is likely.
PHUKET: Doctors at a Phuket hospital are fighting to save the life of a Hong Kong man after he was pulled from a swimming pool at a five-star resort in a coma yesterday.
Manhoe Lai, 31, was in the pool at the JW Marriott Resort and Spa about noon yesterday when his wife and other swimmers raised the alarm.
Mr Lai's wife is reported to have run to the front desk to report that her husband was in difficulties.
Other guests and staff assisted him from the swimming pool and an ambulance was called.
Mr Lai, 31, was taken to Thalang Hospital in central Phuket. His condition was assessed as critical and doctors had him transferred to Bangkok Hospital Phuket in Phuket City.
He is now on life support in the intensive care unit.
Officers from Tachatchai Police Station, at the north of Phuket, were called to the resort, which is in Mai Khao, on Phuket's holiday west coast.
It is believed other swimmers in the pool at the time at first thought Mr Lai was floating face-down deliberately.
The couple had arrived at the resort on Sunday.
"Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

Death awaits us all but some are more lucky than others with regards to length of life.
Being a millionaire counts for nothing on the big scale of things!
If he was piss poor there would be no story.
