Luke Goodere died after suffering an injured stomach in a fall in Thailand

A Briton who died after passing through glass doors in Thailand "lived life to the fullest," his family said.

Luke Goodere, 33, lived with friends on the island of Phi Phi as he stumbled into the doors, which shattered and pierced his stomach.

Mr. Goodere of Skegness, Lincolnshire, may have sustained the injuries as he tripped over a suitcase.

A Lincolnshire coroner reported a cause of death after the fall on April 11.

Some news agencies said he may have stumbled over his luggage after getting out of bed to use the bathroom.

Clive Goodere paid tribute to his son and said, "Luke has enjoyed life to the fullest, skydiving, river rafting … cage diving with sharks and bungee jumping."

On his travels, he also had a number of jobs, including running a nightclub, his father said.

"I said once," Luke, when are you going to get a real job? "

"He replied, 'Dad, when are you going to have a life?'

Prior to the Phi Phi Mountain View Hotel accident, Mr. Goodere had visited Britain to meet his new niece Ava-Rose.

On the way back to Sydney, Australia, he stopped in Thailand where he lived with his girlfriend Kelly.

"The day he died, he had bought tickets for me and his mother to see Queen next February in Sydney, and a tumble dryer for his sister, after she had commented on the amount of laundry she had with one had a new baby, "said his father.

"He was loving, kind and generous."

"Years ago, when asked what he would do if he had a week to live, Luke said he would go home to visit his family and visit friends in Phi Phi – just what he did has, "added Goodere.

At the request, Coroner Paul Smith said, "He fell asleep at 4am and the authorities were alerted four hours later at 8am.

"During the night he got up from bed and suffered a fall and an injury that led to his death.

"The information is a bit sparse," he added, "but there is no indication that an offense has been suspected or investigated."
