He also bled heavily, although The Pattaya News reports that he was “cognizant and calm”.

No children were present when he fell, and teachers called emergency services. Emergency services brought Kritsana to a local hospital where he received emergency surgery.
It remains unknown which school Kritsana was working at when he fell and got injured.
