The Grab Food motorcycle rider who stopped to help a mother take her sick son to hospital Bangkok’s heavy traffic on Tuesday has given some more details about his good deed. The child, Nong Pla Wan, is now being treated in hospital and expected to fully recover from the ordeal.

Read yesterday’s story and watch the dramatic video HERE.

Recalling the way the events unfolded on the day, he says the mother opened her car door and begged “Pop” to help take her to hospital on his motorcycle as her son was having a seizure.

Watchara “Pop” Kasian says that he was delivering a pizza to an address in Watcharaphon. At first he didn’t know what the woman was going on about as he couldn’t see a child and there was dark film on the windows.

He says that, once he knew what was going on, he didn’t hesitate helping the distraught mother and the child, aged about three. He says he has a son of about the same age.

He used all his knowledge of the route and riding ability to get to the hospital ASAP. As he got closer to the hospital he realised that to deliver mother and son to the emergency ward of the hospital he would have to make a time consuming U-turn.

So he stopped and asked a motorcycle taxi driver to take the child and run across the road over-pass. A motorcycle ‘Win’ driver cradled Pla Wan and raced across the footbridge to the ER. Pop explained that when the mother leaped on his bike she mistakenly sat on the pizza he was delivering.

The customer was not very happy when the pizza was eventually but when Pop explained what had happened, and his bosses contacted the customer, it was sorted out amicably.

Pop thanked everyone for the good wishes to him and said if he ever has to do such a thing in the future he will be ready, willing and able.

Thanks Pop!

Returning soldiers’ quarantine site changed to Bangkok | The Thaiger

Soldiers of the Royal Thai Army, heading back next week from a joint military exercise with US troops in Hawaii, will be placed in state quarantine at a hotel in Bangkok, not in Nakhon Ratchasima as earlier planned. The northeastern province’s governor made the announcement today. He had previously approved a request from the 3rd Infantry Division to place 151 soldiers in quarantine at a Nakhon Ratchasima hotel. The soldiers are participating in a joint exercise codenamed Lightning Forge 2020, in Hawaii until July 21. They’re due to return to Thailand on July 22. The governor says the Sripattana Hotel […]

It took snake catchers 15 minutes to capture a 4 metre long python after a scrap dealer in Nonthaburi, just north of Bangkok, discovered it at his store in the province’s Pak Kret sub-district yesterday.

The dealer told the handlers this was the second time pythons had caused him problems, and that the first was even bigger. He noted that the pythons were hankering for some feline snacks and had eaten 20 of his cats. The handlers […]
