Truth : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide!
It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Duangphet Phromthep Was Found Unconscious In His Dorm
Duangphet Phromthep was the 13 year-old captain of the Wild Boards (Moo Pa) football team that was rescued two weeks after a flash flood trapped them in a Thai cave on 23 June 2018.
Also known as Dom and Nong Dom, Duangphet Phromthep went to Chiang Mai to study sports, and received a scholarship to study at the Brooke House College Football Academy in Leicester, England, last year.
A teacher found Dom unconscious in his dorm on Sunday, 12 February 2023, and called the police. A Leicestershire police spokesperson confirmed this, stating:
Duangphet Phromthep was then sent to the Kettering General Hospital. However, he was unresponsive and died on Tuesday, 14 February, 2023. Ian Smith, the principal at Brooke House college released this statement:
Fact #2 : Duangphet Phromthep Allegedly Had A Head Injury
Claims that Duangphet Phromthep died from a cardiac arrest, or in his sleep from SADS, appear to be completely unfounded.
According to Supatpong Methigo – a Buddhist monk who taught him earlier, Duangphet’s grandmother told him he had died, after hitting his head in an accident.
Phra Khu Prayut Jetiyanukarn, abbot of Wat Phra That Doi Wao in Chiang Rai, said Duangphet’sthat mother phoned him around 6 AM and told him that her son had died. The abbot said according to initial reports, there was an accident, a fall, and Duangphet was injured. He was admitted to the hospital, and put on a ventilator, but later died.
Other relatives told Thai reporters that they were informed that Duangphet had been injured in an accident that led to his death, and that details would be given by his football club in England.
Fact #3 : Duangphet Phromthep’s Death Was Not Suspicious
The cause of death for Duangphet Phromthep was initially not officially confirmed, but the Leicestershire police said that his death was not suspicious, and a file would be prepared for the coroner.
Fact #4 : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide
On 4 October 2023, an inquest into Duangphet’s death was held at the Leicester Coroner’s Court. Professor Catherine Mason, the senior coroner for Leicester city and South Leicestershire, recorded a conclusion of suicide.
She said that Duangphet “was not known to mental health services, and it is not known why he took the actions that he did“, so “it could not have been foreseen or prevented“. She also stated that the “police investigation has found no evidence of third-party involvement or suspicious circumstances“.
It may seem obvious now, but I have to point out that Duangphet Phromthep most definitely did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect, as claimed or suggested by many anti-vaccine proponents.

Fact #5 : UK Never Had A Vaccine Mandate For Travellers
The United Kingdom never instituted a vaccine mandate for travellers. Travellers were required to test before flying to the UK, and quarantine on arrival.
The testing requirement was only lifted on 11 February 2022 for fully-vaccinated travellers. Even so, travellers who were not fully-vaccinated could still continue to travel to the UK. They just had to undergo a pre-departure COVID-19 test, and a PCR test on the day of arrival, or the next day.
Fact #6 : Unknown If Duangphet Phromthep Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19
It is unknown if Duangphet Phromthep was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.
For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Thailand, or the United Kingdom.
Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Duangphet Phromthep was fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you. For certain – he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.
Fact #7 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False
So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine are often proven false. Here are some other examples:
- Did MMA Prodigy Victoria Lee Die From Vaccine SADS?!
- Jamie Cail : Autopsy Confirms Cause Of Death!
- Did Bronny James Almost Die From COVID Vaccine?!
- Rab Wardell : Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine SADS!

- Did Antwun Echols Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!
- Did Joesthetics / Jo Lindner Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!
- Did Shane Warne die suddenly from Covid-19 vaccine?!
- Did Stephan Bonnar Die From Vaccine SADS?!
Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…
