    Police were called to Sithipol’s home at about 12:30 am, Pol Capt Adithes Phocharoen, a duty investigator said on Wednesday. Sithipol’s mother Sopa Khotpakdi, said her son had received the first dose of Sinovac vaccine in early September.

    Sithipol went to Synphaet Theparak Hospital on Tuesday afternoon and was inoculated with the Moderna vaccine. He returned home with no sign of side effects, she said. However, late on Tuesday night, while playing on his phone on the second floor of the house, Sithipol began experiencing chest pain and breathing difficulties.

    Sopa said she called for an emergency team from Paolo Hospital Samutprakarn. While waiting, relatives carried Sithipol, who was by then unconscious, down to the ground floor. When the medical team arrived they immediately gave him CPR and used a defibrillator on him, but could not revive him. Sithipol was already dead.
