A 40 year old motorcyclist has been killed instantly while the passenger ended up seriously injured after a 5 car pile up in the Ban Bueang district of Chon Buri on Saturday. Emergency responders arrived at the fatal crash scene on the Ban Bueang – Klaeng road after 9pm on Saturday night.

A blue motorcycle was seen badly mangled and embedded into the back of a Toyota sedan. Two pick-up trucks and a six-wheeler truck were also found nearby with heavy damage.

The Cambodian motorcyclist was killed instantly and his 40 year old passenger, also from Cambodia, was found unconscious and was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

The Toyota driver told police that… “something cut out in front of his car”, causing the sedan to lose control before swerving into a traffic island and then colliding with two pickups, a motorcycle and a truck. He was unable to decrier to police exactly what “ran out in front” of his vehicle.

Police have been reviewing CCTV in the area to determine what happened, when, before laying any further charges. One of the drivers in the pile up told police that the first sedan was seen “gliding” across the traffic island before crashing into a the first pick-up and then into his own pickup, before crashing into the motorcycle.

Investigators say that all drivers and witnesses were questioned later as police considered them all dazed and confused the incident in the immediate aftermath.

Pattaya residents made a grisly find today at the Nongprue Municipality tip this morning. Whilst digging for items they could recycle and sell, they discovered the dead body of a baby. Police are now launching an investigation for the individual responsible. Nongprue Police were notified of the discovery of the corpse of the newborn baby at the garbage dump at the Nongprue Municipality tip this morning.

Emergency responders arrived at the municipal garbage dump to find the body of the baby inside a black plastic bag amongst all the other garbage. 38 year old Sirithon Tapjeen, who made the horrifying discovery, told The Pattaya News that she and some associates were searching for plastic bottles to sell for recycling.

She says she “smelled something rotten before realising that it was a dead newborn baby”.

Police are now trying to find the infant’s mother and anyone associated with the dumping of the body at the site.

32 year old recovers in hospital after tiger attack in Pattaya | The Thaiger

A 32 year old man is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a tiger yesterday whilst feeding it at the Elephant Kingdom park in Pattaya. Only quick action from park staff prevented the man from being mauled and killed by the animal. Emergency responders were called to the scene at around 3.30pm at the Elephant Kingdom in Huay Yai, Banglamung.

The injured man, named as Thitiphong Makkarom, suffered injuries to his legs, arms side of his face. He was rushed to hospital. Friends and fellow workers say that Thitiphong was feeding 3 tigers inside a cage as normal. The park has been closed due to the lack of tourists. They told reporters that Thitiphong had never had problems with these tigers before.

But one of the tigers “jumped” at the worker and started attacking him, apparently unprovoked. Nearby staff saw what was happening and rushed to help pull him away from the attacking tiger. Their quick action probably saved him from being killed.

The Elephant Kingdom Park has been closed since the start of the outbreak of the coronavirus in Thailand back in March. But staff have remained employed to continue feeding and taking care of the animals. The incident is now being investigated and police say they will interview Thitiphong when he is able to speak to them.
