Thai Boy Dies After Going Missing In Tokyo

A Thai teenager who wandered out of his family’s Tokyo hotel room has died of an “unexpected accident”, his mother said Wednesday.

Tien Sukanonsawat, 14, disappeared from the Mercure Tokyo Ginza hotel in the Japanese capital April 15 and was not found for more than a day. However, the boy later died in hospital, his mother told the Thai media, requesting privacy.

Tien was seen in hotel security-camera footage leaving a fifth-storey hotel room he was sharing with two siblings and taking the elevator around 11:35 p.m. He was wearing pyjamas and hotel slippers and had no coat, telephone or train pass, his mother said.

Tokyo was unseasonably cold over the weekend with night-time temperatures plunging to about 7 degrees Celsius with intermittent rain and arctic winds.

His mother, Yuwajitra Watchara-arpa, contacted police, the Thai embassy and the media and her plight soon went viral. It was no disclosed how or where the boy was found.

Violent crime – especially against children – is extremely rare in Tokyo and child disappearances, particularly of foreign tourists, generates tremendous publicity.
