Photos of a young child sitting on the roof of a moving car have caused outrage on social media.

The pictures, posted on Facebook yesterday, show the child in school uniform, sitting on the roof of a car as it travels along a main road in Lamphun province, northern Thailand.

Debate rages over the images, with many pointing out how heartbroken the parents would be if anything were to happen to the child as a result of their recklessness. One person suggests the parents may have placed the child on the roof deliberately, as a way of attracting public attention.

Another claims to be so angry that he would like to teach the parents a lesson, and points out that if an accident were to happen, the other party would feel terrible for injuring or possibly killing a child.

The Facebook user who posted the pictures questioned what the car driver was thinking.

“This is so dangerous, how could you allow this? My brother sent me this picture. What made the parents think that a child sitting on the car roof while it is driving is considered okay? This is so dangerous. This took place at the Tha Jak Intersection, Lamphun Province. If it seems like I’m blaming someone then I apologise, but this is truly very inappropriate.”

According to one Twitter user, the mother of the child has been questioned by police and claims it was the child’s grandfather who was driving at the time.

She adds that her son loves sitting on the roof of the car and does so regularly. Apparently, she didn’t expect it to cause such a stir.

The police have fined her and given her a warning.

Thai woman arrested after 13 year old Burmese girl forced into prostitution | The Thaiger

Police have arrested a local Mae Hong Son woman for allegedly procuring a 13 year old girl as a prostitute for sex with a string of local men. Mae Hong Son is west of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, on the Myanmar border.

Mae Hong Son police say the woman, whose name had not been names at this time, was arrested at a guesthouse after the Shan girl, from a Burmese state in eastern Myanmar, implicated her as the person who forced the girl into the sex trade.

A police source claims the girl, who recently completed Prathom 6 at a local school, claimed she had been forced to have unprotected sex with about 10 men since June, meeting them in a convenience store at a petrol station and accompanying them to the guesthouse on Liang Muang Road.

The disturbing case came to police attention earlier this week after she sought treatment at Sri Sangwan Hospital for gonorrhoea that was so severe in a patient so young that questions were raised by hospital staff.

A village in Phitsanulok’s Wang Thong district in north-central Thailand, has been totally inundated after a river burst its banks early this morning.

Water started rising in the Fuangfah village in the Wang Thong district around 2.30am when the Wang Thong River overflowed. Rescuers rushed to the village by boat to evacuate the residents. Levels rose very fast with some parts of the village under two metres of floodwaters.

Villagers were still asleep and were woken up by megaphone that they needed to prepare for evacuation. The evacuation was difficult as the village had several bedridden patients and elderly people.

The Ban Khao Samor Kraeng community nearby was also hit by the overflowing river. There was also flooding on the Phitsanulok-Lomsak road leading to Wang Thong downtown area, with an 800 metre stretch under 20-30 centimetres of water.

‘Podul’, the tropical storm that came out of the South China Sea and headed westward through Vietnam into the north of Thailand, has now weakened but inundated parts of the north-east and northern Thailand in its wake.

Flooding in and around Khon Kaen has been reported to be as high as three metres with over 1,000 houses inundated. Homes and cars were submerged with residents stranded on their roofs waiting for rescue

Roads were also damaged in the area with some collapsing due to the torrential currents. The Army are already on site to help with emergency repairs.

In Kalasin, just to the east of Khon Kaen, more heavy downpours caused the Huay Sithon dam to overflow inundating up to 10 villages in its wake near the main city centre. 45 houses have been flooded with floodwaters over a metre high.

About 450 households were affected, with water reaching chest-high level. In some areas, there was more than a metre of flooding.

Other dams in the area were being watched carefully with the Kalasin governor assuring residents the  Lampao dam is currently only 41% of capacity able to carry a lot more water.

Officials at the Thung Salaeng Luang National Park, spanning Phitsanulok and Phetchabun in central Thailand, have closed some of the park attractions saying that storm Podul made it dangerous to visit at the moment.

In Nan province, in northern Thailand, landslides hit 14 houses in the Na Noi district, destroying four houses and blocking local roadways. Next door in Phrae province torrential rain battered the region for 24 hours with emergency crews on standby to help with evacuations and relief.

Meanwhile the Thai Meteorological Department is warning that heavy rains will continue today.

Monsoon trough lie across North and upper Northeast. The strong southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea and the upper Gulf. Torrential rains are forecast much of the North, the Northeast, the Central and the Southwest regions.

The winds waves are likely 2-4 metres high in the upper Andaman Sea and 2-3 meters in the upper Gulf with above 4 meters high in thundershower areas. All ships should proceed with caution and keep off thundershowers, and small boats keep ashore.
