At around 3:00pm on Sunday April 9th, police and emergency services were called to the scene of a freak accident involving a Swiss National.

Mr Ballmann Peter Heinz, aged 58, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident occured at a small community pool in a small housing estate in Pattaya. The victim’s wife was left devastated at the scene.

The victim had been his usual self earlier in the day, before venturing out to clean the community pool, the same as he did most days, his wife told police.

Unfortunately, nobody at the scene was able to do anything to help, and by the time the emergency services had arrived, the victim had already passed away.

The investigation continues.
