CityNews – A Petchabun man, Manun Khamtaeng (36), was found by his mother hanging in his bedroom on October 29th.

It was reported in Thairath that manun had been suffering from hiccups for about 3 months.

On the day of his death his mother had taken him to hospital to have his throat checked. When they returned home he went upstairs. Sometime later the mother found him hanged in his room.

He had asked his mother a day before that if he should die would she receive any money. The mother told reporters that she told her son that she didn’t want any money if he died.

Hiccups usually don’t last longer than a few minutes, but can sometimes last hours. In very rare cases ‘persistent hiccups’ have been known to last for months. The longest known case of hiccups is 60 years. Medical science states that persistent hiccups often mean an underlying problem, such as stomach and balder disorders, cancer of the liver, or hepatitis.
