Man with breathing difficulty dies in taxi

A 49-year-old man died in a taxi in front of a luxury condo in Nonthaburi today (July 27) after  coming down from his unit and asking a guard to call one because he had breathing problems and was fatigued, TV Channel 7 said.

At around noon Pol. Lt .

However as soon as he sat in the cab, he slumped back and died.

Police have sent his body to the Institute of Forensic Science for a detailed autopsy to determine the cause of death and whether he was infected with coronavirus.
