BANGKOK (AP) — Police in Thailand say an Irish tourist has died after falling out of a moving train. The man was identified as 45-year-old Patrick Ward, whose Irish passport said he was born in New Zealand. Police say Ward traveled on Tuesday by rail with a tour group from the Bangkok to Kanchanaburi town, where the bridge over the River Kwai is located. After a brief stop, the group proceeded to a waterfall where police quoted witnesses as saying that when the train slowed down at a scenic spot, Ward opened a door in the carriage and fell 7-8 yards down a slope. Police say they do not suspect foul play.
