Phuket expat Allan Birger Bruun, 41, from Denmark, died after suffering a deep cut to his arm inflicted when he smashed the glass on his front door to enter his own home, say police.

Lt Jaras Lempan of the Wichit Police received a call from an emergency ambulance of Dibuk Hospital on 6 November 2016, leading to Maj Col Thada Sodarat of the Chalong Police arriving at Mr Bruun’s home shortly after.

“Mr Bruun had a very serious cut near his right elbow. He had severed a blood vessel and was bleeding profusely,” Col Thada told The Phuket News on 15 November 2016.

“I believe he was locked out of his house and used his elbow to break the glass on the front door to get in,” Col Thada says.

“When he was discovered he was rushed to Dibuk Hospital immediately – but it was too late. Doctors confirmed that he died of blood loss. They also confirmed that he had a pre-existing heart condition,” Col Thada says and adds that Mr Bruun’s body was later transferred to Vachira Hospital morgue.

Mr Bruun’s friends, with permission from the family, are making arrangements for Mr Bruun to be buried in Phuket, Lt Jaras says.
