California’s Fresno Police release video of the difficult recovery

Fresno County has released video clip of the September 1 operation to retrieve bodies of two Thai students who died in a road accident at the King River in California.

The 5 minute video shows different stages of the recovery operation conducted by the Fresno County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team.

They say it took a total of eight hours to successfully move the car and remove the two bodies. The victims were later identified to be 28 year old Pakapol Bhakapon Chairatnathrongporn and 24 year old Thiwadee Saengsuriyarit.

The two were driving on a highway on July 26 to Kings Canyon National Park when their rental car plunged off a 150-metre cliff and came to rest partially submerged in a river.
