The media mentioned “Coma!!” in their headline. Dr Phuwadon Kittiwattanasan said that Bart Allen Helmus was in a critical condition at 3.30 am but was still on a respirator. His wife was also in a serious condition after he apparently shot her in the forehead. ER staff confirmed to the media around 4 am that the American was still alive, but barely. His heart was still pumping, they said.

Earlier Thai media reported that he was already dead. The truth seems to be that after five hours in such a critical condition he would be presumed dead and life support would be turned off, notes Thaivisa. 77kaoded contradicted and added to previous reports about the couple’s capture. They said the American fired at the police twice with a BB gun adapted to be a 9 mm. He then was reported as shooting his wife Sirinpha in the forehead. Earlier reports suggested she was only slightly wounded, now she is in a grievous condition according to the director of the hospital. Following shooting his wife the American turned the gun on himself, shooting to the head said 77kaoded.
