Horrible, what a nasty way to die.

A HOLIDAY to Thailand has ended in tragedy for one Queensland family, after a father-of-three died from suspected food poisoning last weekend.

Yandina resident Rex Tickell, 55, was holidaying in Thailand with his three children, Lennaya, Zeke and Izaius, his wife Christine and her sister and brother-in-law, when the family contracted an unknown illness on July 2.

It is understood Mr Tickell was vomiting so heavily that he fell unconscious, and was unable to be revived by CPR, he later died in hospital.

I was lucky enough to have survived Thailand food. Diarrhea was my worst experience in Chiang Mai.

I am horrified. What a nightmare for this family to lose their father/husband/brother-in-law.

I should also add that many people do not take precautions when traveling. There are Travel Medicine specialists that can advise you regarding diet, food safety practices and antibiotic prescriptions that can be used to reduce your risk.

So many people frown on avoiding certain dishes or refuse to take antibiotics but these precautions save lives.

I have traveled to several high risk areas and have managed to avoid illness even when my companions became ill.

I never heard of that news before but anyway if that is true it was a horrible experience. It will be helpful whenever you travel to only eat food to recommended places only.

Indeed, but it can happen everywhere.

I was almost totalled when a friend and I ate out a very nice restaurant in NYC in the Sixites. He was sick, and I was extremely sick for days.

I got food poisoning in Chiang Mai.
Didn't follow my own rules.


Always eat at known restaurant. Those recommendations can come from others living or visiting Thailand. From the regular tourist books that one should read before traveling to any country.


Look for restaurants with lots of people/turnover.


If I really want to be safe visit restaurant in one of the better hotels. Most venues will have a Western style pub or a German style restaurant.


And has been stated above - skip the drinks with ice cubes. Stick to bottled drinks. In Thailand today in every city there is a 7-11 store on just about every corner for bottled drinks.
