Bangkok; Tuesday (AAP/Reuters): Two Hotel Ramschitt staff members have been admitted to hospital suffering chemical delirium, after attempting to clean a hotel guest's room.
The staffers, known only as Jasmine and Angel, said the chemical contamination suits supplied by hotel management were ineffective.
"I became dizzy as soon as I entered the room," Angel said. "Then Jasmine collapsed on the wreckage of the bed.
"We were not properly equipped to deal with the situation."
Bangkok police said several new species of fungus, a carton of what appeared to be Viagra, a vial of blue liquid and some unidentified white powders were seized from the room and taken for chemical analysis.
Hotel Ramschitt manager Mrs Pinky T. Watt said all 163 hotel staffers were undergoing counselling for post-traumatic stress disorder.
The occupant of the hotel room has been named as 33-year-old Australian citizen, Mr. Safari Bob. Mr Bob has not been sighted since Monday night. Police said they feared for his safety, and have called on the public for help.
"We appeal to members of the public to be on the lookout for a tall Caucasian male, last seen wearing a Hawaiian shirt and carrying a tent in his trousers," a police spokesman said.
