Family of British man who died suddenly in Udon Thani appeal for help in paying for his funeral

The family of British man who collapsed and died suddenly in Udon Thani are seeking financial help for his funeral.

Nathan Blake, 48, first travelled to Thailand in 2013, the Swindon Advertiser reported.

A well known member of the expat community in Udon Thani, where he lived with his Thai wife and child, Mr Blake was reportedly on his way to hospital last week after complaining of chest pains but sadly died in the ambulance after medics had been unable to resuscitate him.

Mr Blake’s two daughters from a previous marriage who both live in the UK have spoken of their grief after being told their father had passed away.

Daughter Megan, 20, told the Swindon Advertiser: “He had pain in his chest and passed away in the ambulance and they couldn’t resuscitate him”.

“I never expected in a million years to get a phone call to say Dad’s dead.”

While a family member stepped in to pay for Mr Blake’s body to be returned to the UK, Megan and her sister Lucie,16, still need funds to help arrange a funeral for their late father.

The sisters now set up a Go Fund Me page to help them cover the costs of organising the unexpected funeral and are asking for help.
