A 55-year-old Russian was found dead hanging by a shoestring. Dongtan-based police responded to the Dragon Beach Resort when staff reported having found the guest dead in his bathroom. Alexandre Ivanov had died about three hours earlier after making a loop over the shower with a black boot lace. There were several empty bottles of alcohol on the room’s balcony and no sign of foul play.

A cleaning lady, Urai Phaokang, added that she tried to gain entry to the room several times before realizing something was wrong. Security staff gained admittance and found the deceased.
