A British man died of bleeding after collapsing on a glass shower screen at his Pattaya house on Wednesday morning, police said.

The death occurred at a one-storey house in Pattaya's Bang Lamung district. Police found the body of Gareth Wilson, 54, lying face up on his bed. He was wearing only underpants and there was a big cut on his chest.

Next to the bed was a fragment of a glass shower door and a pool of blood on the floor. Police did not see any signs of a struggle.

Police quoted his Thai wife as saying that the man had partied with friends on Tuesday night and on Wednesday morning he passed out while walking towards the shower room.

His head struck the sliding glass door which broke and cut his chest.

The man struggled back to his bed and lay there. A medical team was called to the scene but he died of blood loss.
