They had to part a crowd of some 100 Thai and foreign tourists who had gathered around his body. He was given CPR then transferred to Pattaya Memorial but was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Witnesses said that people ran in terror around 4.30am when they heard the sound of the man hitting the road. Concerned tourists made a space in the crowd so he could breathe and a towel was found to give him some modesty.

But it was all in vain.

The incident happened in front of Sweetheart Go-Go Bar in Walking Street, South Pattaya.

Mr Laidler had been staying in room A26 above the bar. Police said rooms there were rented out on a daily basis.

Police said there were no valuables in the room and no sign of any struggle.

They are concerned that he was naked and are gathering witness statements and examining CCTV as the investigation continues.
