A British tourist has dropped dead from a heart attack while watching girls at a popular Thai strip bar.

The man, in his 60s, was sat at the side of the stage alone in the packed bar on Wednesday night.

Customers and staff were ushered out of the bar in the red light district of Soi Cowboy, Bangkok, according to stickboybkk.com

Onlookers said he waving around a foam police baton toy before he fell face first onto the tiled floor.

The MailOnline reports that devastated performers who saw him collapse comforted each other while pictures show emergency crews working at the scene.

One girl who was working at a venue on the red light district said: "The man was like everybody else. He was just sitting next to the stage. He was enjoying himself.

"There was a toy, like a police baton. He was playing with it and then... his head stopped. He fell forwards and his face hit the ground."

The area which is based in the capital of Thailand was busy with tourists who had arrived for Thai new year.

Staff initially thought the Brit, who has not yet been named, had suffered a seizure but medics later said they believed he had experienced a heart attack.

Medics arrived and performed CPR on the man but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

It's reported that officers took statements from people, including staff and management, who confirmed what appeared to be seen on CCTV - that the Brit seemed to have had a heart attack.

The man's body was taken to hospital for a post mortem examination and the British Embassy in Bangkok was informed.

Earlier this year, LADbible reported on the death of Christina Annesley, from south east London, who's body was found on a beach on the Thai island of Koh Tao back in 2015.

Her death still remains a mystery but her dad spoke out urging British travellers to stay away from the island.

The heart-broken father expressed his beliefs that other unexplained deaths are due to a 'serial killer family' that live there.

Speaking to news.com.au, he said: "I don't believe we'll ever find out what happened to her. There's no proof because you can't get proof because the authorities are corrupt.

"In the back of my mind I had a feeling there might be something wrong. Now I'm really suspicious.

"They didn't find Christina for 24 hours and she'd been lying in the heat."
