A 44-year-old father of two collapsed while taking a short rest after playing basketball. He was later pronounced dead on April 1, Thursday in Nonthaburi. 

Kabayan Jovanny Jamero, 44, was playing basketball along with Filipino and Thai friends in an open public court when the incident happened. He was standing and talking after a short break when he suddenly collapsed. An emergency medical team tried to revive him but to no avail. Jamero was also taken to the nearby Pranangklao Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The cause of his death is believed to be heart failure. His body remains in the hospital as of this time, awaiting autopsy results. 

Jamero, a native of Ilo-ilo left behind his wife, a teacher; and two young daughters. The family is living in Nonthaburi, northwest of Bangkok.
