A policeman in the northern province of Phitsanulok has had a lucky escape after he slipped and fell while re-arranging flags on the roof of the police station. Following a bout of heavy rain and high winds, Wichayut Srikrajang noticed the flags were in disarray and took it upon himself to fix them. However, the rain had also made the roof’s surface slippery. Wichayut ended up losing his footing and slipping off the roof, landing on the steps of the station below.

Ouch!

He was swiftly helped by fellow officers, who called the local rescue team. Wichayut was taken to Naresuan University Hospital for treatment. He had fractured a rib and needed 8 stitches in his head, but Thai Residents reports that he is now back home and recovering well. He says he remembers slipping while on the roof but not much after that. The Thaiger wishes him a speedy recovery!

The trucks are carrying goods across the Mae Sai border checkpoint in Chiang Rai to be delivered to the town of Tachileik in the neighbouring country. The tight restrictions come after Myanmar has seen an uptick in Covid cases and the clamp down is reportedly part of the effort to control the spread of the virus. Before the surge in cases, the country was allowing up to almost 170 […]
