BANGKOK – Thai police have confirmed a British man was among the four people killed in a nightclub fire on the popular resort island of Phuket.
Forensic experts at Bangkok's police hospital said Tuesday that they were able to use dental records to identify the body of 24-year-old Michael Pio Tzouvanni.
Police Lt. Gen. Jarumporn Suramanee said Tzouvanni died from smoke inhalation in Friday's blaze at the Tiger Discotheque on Patong beach.
He said Tzouvanni's brother confirmed the body's identity from his belongings.
Jarumporn said police were still waiting for DNA test results to help identify the other three bodies. Those are believed to be those of two Thai women and a French man.
At least 11 people were also injured in the fire.
