Avatar of CTN News




PATTAYA – Police and rescue workers were called to Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Chon Buri’s Sattahip district after a Canadian tourist was discovered dead on a yacht early on Friday morning.

The Royal Thai police were informed at 2.30am that  Gilbert Tourville , 61, had died on the yacht that was docked at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Tambon Na Jomtien.

A doctor determined that he had died about eight hours earlier. There was no sign of foul play.

The victim’s friend, 53-year-old Denis Bachand, also a Canadian national, told police that they both sailed the yacht out into the sea last night. However, Gilbert complained about chest pains, so Bachand sailed back to the yacht club, but Gilbert didn’t make it.

Authorities suspect a pre-existing medical condition flaring up to be the cause of his death.

His body has been transferred to the Institute of Forensic Medicine in order to finalize the cause of death.

Gilbert’s relatives have, reportedly, been contacted by the Canadian Embassy in Bangkok.
