Intoxicated British Man Too Drunk to Unlock His Gate Impales Himself Climbing His Fence at Pattaya Home

Pattaya – An intoxicated British man sustained a serious abdominal injury after impaling himself on a pointed iron fence at his residence in the Bang La Mung district of Chon Buri. The incident occurred on Sunday, April 7th, in the early morning hours.

Emergency responders swiftly arrived at the man’s residence, located in the Nongprue area, after receiving a distress call around 12:15 A.M. There, they discovered the foreigner, later identified by police as Michael G., a 65-year-old British national, stuck on the fence. One of the fence posts, shaped as an arrowhead, had pierced his belly, causing a wound approximately five to six inches deep.

The rescuers skillfully lifted Mr. Michael off the railing, administered first aid, and promptly transported him to a nearby hospital. His condition was critical due to the severity of the injury.

According to local media reports, Mr. Michael initially attempted to open the gate to his house but was too inebriated to do so. Subsequently, he decided to climb over the fence to get inside, slipped, and tragically impaled himself on its top.

A concerned neighbor, identified only as Ms. Pat (50), recounted hearing loud moans and cries before discovering Mr. Michael’s precarious situation. She acted swiftly, fetching a ladder to help rescue him and promptly alerting paramedics.

Mr. Michael had been residing in the house for several months, according to Ms. Pat. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding this unfortunate event.
