The man had been living in Pattaya for the last three years with his father. His ross mackaymother Lyn Mackay, a musician, actress and write of the musical Swansea Girls said that Ross had planned to return home before the incident occurred.

Lyn was informed of her son’s death by phone, she was working as a singer / pianist on board a cruise ship in the Mediterranean at the time. She said that although Ross had not been formally diagnosed with epilepsy, he had one or two seizures a year on average. Ross worked in a call centre in the city during the day and in bars and clubs at night where he was developing his musical career. His mother had high hopes that he would one day follow in her footsteps and become a professional musician.
