A THIRTY-one stone tourist who forced flight crew to wipe his bum as he moaned with pleasure has died in a seedy Thai resort famed for prostitution.
The American, who hasn’t been named, died last month while on a lengthy trip on Ko Samui due to an undisclosed illness.
Airline EVA Air discovered he had passed away as they put plans in motion to ban the traveller from flying with them again.
He sent shockwaves across the world when he was accused of forcing cabin crew to strip him in a cramped loo and wipe his bum while he moaned with pleasure.
The disgusting incident allegedly occurred on an EVA Air long-haul flight from Los Angeles to Taiwan’s Taoyuan Airport.
A stunned flight attendant told how the hulking passenger boarded the plane on a wheelchair and asked to be given three adjoining seats in economy class due to his size.
He then demanded to use the plane’s business class lavatory, as he could not fit in the economy-size cubicle.
But while in the toilet, he claimed he had an injury to his right hand that prevented him from undressing so demanded cabin crew strip him down so he could relieve himself.
The attendant said: “I told him we couldn’t help him, but he started yelling.
“He told me to go in there immediately and threatened to relieve himself on the floor.
“As the passenger’s genitals were now exposed, one of my colleagues brought a blanket, which I used to cover his modesty.
“But he very angrily slapped my hand away, saying he didn’t want it and only wanted me to remove his underwear so he could use the toilet.”
The tourist then asked crew to wipe his bum for him – leading him to groan as the chief attendant fulfilled his request while wearing three pairs of latex gloves.
The attendant, who was holding onto the passenger to keep him steady, recalled: “He said: ‘Oh, mmm, deeper, deeper,’ and then accused my chief attendant of not properly cleaning his backside, requesting that she do it again.”
She said the attendant repeated the action three times before leaving, at which point the passenger said: “You can pull my pants back up now.”
The two female flight attendants involved, who both said they were traumatised by the incident in January, are both on extended paid leave.
Party island Ko Samui – the second largest island in Thailand – is known for its prostitution and seedy nightlife.
