TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Monday announced the death of a male English teacher from the U.S. living in Setagaya Ward after he lapsed into a coma last month, reports Jiji Press (March 2).

On February 11 at around 5:30 p.m., the American, 29, was seen behaving “erratically” on a street in the Akasaka district of Minato Ward by a passerby who called emergency personnel.

Six officers from the Akasaka Police Station arrived at the scene and restrained the arms and legs of the teacher after he became violent. He was then transported to a hospital in a state of cardiopulmonary arrest.

The teacher remained unconscious while in the hospital. He died on Sunday.

After an autopsy, the cause of death remained unknown. No external injuries were found on the victim’s body, police said.

  1. He died of asphyxiation! “Restrained him”?? Yeah, by placing him in a choke hold until he went into cardiac arrest! The cause of death remains unknown? Are you kidding me?? Shameful.
