Thai man accidentally kills himself with homemade bomb

Published

 on 

A young Thai man has accidentally killed himself with a homemade bomb in the Muang district of Kanchanaburi province this morning. 22 year old Amornthep Thongchomphu was found dead with his arm blown off after the bomb exploded in a field near his home.

Local police went to the scene at about 11am, outside the man’s house in Ban Nong Kung village of tambon Ban Thum. Police found the man’s dead body along with a scorched, ruptured PVC pipe. Village headman Boonruam Somwongsa says Amornthap stayed alone in the house as his mother worked abroad, sending home money. He was apparently jobless and was not known to socialise.

Boonruam says the man allegedly had a dispute with a neighbour previously and on 2 occasions had thrown a small bomb at his neighbour’s house, leading him to file a complaint. Boonruam says it was likely that Amornthep was making another bomb to throw at his neighbour when it accidentally detonated.

The Ban Ped police chief says another small homemade bomb was found at Amornthep’s house, with its components being possibly bought from online.

    Strangely enough, The Thaiger has kept very quiet about this news story involving Rama 10!! However, there appears to be many ‘other’ news agencies going to print on this shocking revelation!
    ‘DOMESTIC ABUSE’ IS RIFE IN THAILAND AND ITS HEAD OF STATE SHOULD HOLS HIS ‘HEAD IN TOTAL SHAME’….NO MAN SHOULD HURT A WOMAN LIKE HE HAS DONE!!

    Love stories like this!
    Happy Ending!

    Next, I want to see someone (wannabe Zorro) who has threatened another person with a sword.

    Then Zorro goes home, decides to do a TicToc video of a daring act.

    He swallows his sword and falls to the ground with massive internal bleeding… and croaks.
    Another future happy ending!

    The irony of which he had just purchased some nice long sleeve shirts.

    Thailand needs a French Revolution complete with Guillotines and a Bastille. The sooner the better.

    There was a video a few years back about a Thai shaman who had an act in which he magically could not be pierced by a sword. I think you can guess what happened. Not exactly Zorro, but, oh well.

    police say he didnt resist arrest and was unarmed when they arrived.
    there was an initial stand off when police ordered him to come out with his hands in the air.
    hed been operating as a bandit so police will now charge the 1 armed bandid for illegal gambling.

    police are searching for his accomplice who is known to be his right hand man. i’m sure he won’t escape the long arm of the law.

    Mr Jim Kelly…
    Just a suggestion for you.
    There is a reason that Thai Media and Thai people are not writing bad things about the King or the Monarchy…

    They do not want to be locked up!

    I strongly suggest, especially if you are in Thailand, to not criticize the King or the Monarchy.

    And doubly, especially write or post things to the media here.

    Even if you are using a ghost name…

    Good Luck Mate!

    he’s lucky! in some countries they’d chop his fingers off.

    a later report stated the neighbour said the man had thrown the bombs safety pin at his house

    clearly the guy had a very short fuse.

    he suspected something was not quite right with his bomb design but couldn’t quite put his finger on it.

    So the police had a ‘hands off’ approach to the problem.

    I’m amazed the Jim Kelly posts have been allowed to be published (and remain published) in the “Thaigers” comments section. Have Thailand’s lèse-majesté laws no longer being enforced, or are Jim Kelly and the “Thaiger” playing a very dangerous game with their liberty?

    I just want to say it’s nice to read comments that comment on the article instead of the pissing wars that were here recently.

    Well, you gotta hand it to the guy. He single-handedly completed the mission with only 1 casualty. A man outstanding in his field. Mom won’t need to pay his allowance anymore. It was probably costing her an arm and a leg.

  26. brian mc

    he aint outstanding in his field anymore, more like spread over 3 or 4 fields.
    the gloves on the other hand now as it looks like he gave his mum the elbow

    So, he single-handedly covered all the bases.
