The 49 year old Chiang Mai resident who catapulted to fame in the film Sunset at Chaopraya (Khu Kam) has been suffering for years for alcohol related illnesses.

Ram Waratham, O Varuth’s father explained that on the evening of August 9th, O Varuth was back home from a work trip in Lamphun when he collapsed onto the bed and had a seizure. He was sent to the emergency at Hang Dong Hospital.

The hospital disclosed that the actor has low blood pressure and still needs the medical ventilator to help breathing. His heart reportedly stops occasionally. He is still unconscious today (August 10th).

As he has several diseases including diabetes and hypertension, his father stated to reporters that the family is ready to accept any incident.
