A Pattaya man who tried to end it all was saved from a hanging death by family members.
Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation medics arrived at Chokchai Garden Home Village 3 to find the unidentified 31-year-old unconscious. They provided first aid and CPR before transporting him to Bangkok Hospital Pattaya.
The man had tied a nylon rope to a branch of a mango tree in his front yard and hung himself by the neck.
Relatives said they were inside and wondered where he had gone. One stepped out into the yard and saw the man hanging, called for help and cut him down before he asphyxiated. Relatives said they had no idea what motivated the suicide attempt.
