Rescue workers prepare to remove the body of Kobchai Pureprasert, 39, from an examination room Sunday at Ramkhamhaeng University in Bangkok.

BANGKOK — A man died after suffering a seizure Sunday during testing for a municipal job at Ramkhamhaeng University.

University staff said Kobchai Pureprasert, 39, suffered a sudden seizure while sitting for a test with about 500 people seeking positions with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration on Sunday afternoon. First aid was rendered but failed to save his life.

“His friends and relatives don’t know whether he had any congenital condition,” said police Lt. Kittichet Kittisart of Huamark police.

Kobchai had been an administrator at Charoenkrung Pracharak Hospital. His body was taken to Police General Hospital for examination.

Kittichet said the incident didn’t affect the test as it concluded at about 4pm.
