The yachting community in Phuket’s Ao Yon area is still coming to grips with the sudden, unexpected death of long-term British expat David Cummins.

Emergency services rushed to the scene, but to no avail. Mr Cummins was pronounced dead on arrival at Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town.

Police found no signs of assault and believe the death was from natural causes, but still requested for doctors to conduct a preliminary post-mortem examination to establish the cause of death, which at this early stage close friends believe to have been heart failure.

Mr Cummins’s sister and his children, who learned of his death overnight (Phuket time), are en route to Phuket and are expected to arrive tomorrow. It is not yet known whether they will request an autopsy.
