Thai wife says five paracetamol killed British husband

A Surin wife told police she believed that five paracetamol and a glass of orange juice killed her healthy British husband.

Police who arrived at a house in Ban Yayam village in Sikhoraphum district of Surin found 52 year old  sprawled on the ground by a hammock.

He was dressed only in shorts and there were no signs of injury.

He was already dead.

His distraught wife 45, told investigators that they had lived together for two years tending cattle and growing rice on 15 rai of land.

Her husband had just been to feed grass to the cows yesterday and returned home to have a rest. He complained of a headache and took five paracetamol washed down with some orange juice.

Then he lay down on his hammock. Within moments she said that he fell off the hammock. She ran and tried to raise him up as he beat his chest with his fist saying that he had chest pains.

He passed out dead in her arms almost immediately and she called police.

In tears told the officers that her husband was a very healthy man who had no illnesses. The last time he saw a doctor was over a year and a half ago.

She blamed the paracetamol and orange juice.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Five Paracetamol? He must've been feeling very bad to take such a high dosage. Overdosing Paracetamol makes your liver fail. Maybe he had a stroke. Paracetamol could not have helped there at all.
