    Briton dies in plunge from expressway

    A so far unnamed British businessman died this morning when he fell from the outbound Srirat expressway onto Ramkhamhaeng Road in Bangkok in an apparent suicide.


    The victimís Thai wife later told the police that her husband was under stress because his business was in financial trouble, but he did not exhibit any signs of other illness.


    A vendor at the Ramkhamhaeng intersection, Mr. Suraphan Rummapor, told the police that he heard the thud, of what appeared to be a heavy object, landing on the road and saw a man lying near the intersection.


    A traffic policeman then cordoned off the area around the victim while waiting for rescue workers to arrive.


    The victimís body was sent to the Police General Hospitalís Forensic Institute for an autopsy.


    Mr. Noppadol Seethongkham, of the charitable Ruamkatanyu Foundation, said that rescue workers have to exercise extra caution when collecting bodies or rescuing the injured in during the COVID-19 pandemic.


    After each mission, he said all the protective gear is placed in a red biohazard bag for proper disposal.

    There will be a few more of these before the year is out. Depressing thought, I realise, but for some the idea of having to rebuild from scratch is too much.

    I've lost a bit and will likely lose a bit more but it just means less luxuries, thank goodness.

    ...agree: some folks have too much invested and not enough saved...I keep a year's income worth of emergency savings in the States so that I'm not tempted by bridges or balconies...
