Thai navy special forces have reported the tragic loss of one of its cadets during a ‘freak’ training accident on Thursday.

While in training to join an elite Navy unit, 22 year old Navy trainee Kriangsak Pengpanich was struck in the neck by a needlefish moving at high speed. The carnivorous shallow water fish are not considered to be aggressive towards humans and few fatal incidents in the past have involved young people.

The accident happened off the coast of Trat province during a 60 hour training exercise.

The funeral is being held at the Sattahip district of Chonburi province until Tuesday.

Online posts by Marine ecologist Thon Thamrongnawasawat say this is the first time he has heard of a fatal attack by a needlefish in Thailand.

The governor of Chon Buri, along with district chiefs, mayors and health personnel decided at a top level meeting yesterday on a 10 point plan to fight the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, set to be signed and implemented today.

The measures leave any tourists still in Pattaya at the whim of hotel owners as to whether they will stay open. They include curfews measures, hotel closures, restrictions on employees leaving the province and the essential shutdown of Pattaya. No one will be able to go in or out of the resort unless absolutely necessary.

Infections in Chonburi yesterday rocketed to 61…

The new measures include…

  1. Each district sets up its own taskforce to ensure compliance with the regulations
  2. Hotels and places that resemble hotels are to close down and employees are to stay at the hotels and not leave Chon Buri. Hotels that still have guests have three days to decide whether to close down or stay open.
  3. Pattaya will be sealed off. No one will be allowed to go in or out. Checkpoints will decide on special cases.
  4. All beaches in Chon Buri are closed to any social gathering. Swimming is still allowed.
  5. Petrol stations are to close between 10pm and 5am.
  6. Some markets are ordered to close.
  7. People are asked to observe an 11pm to 5 am curfew (This appears to be superseded by the national curfew announced last night, which is effective as of today).
  8. Certain, unspecified “commercial businesses” are ordered closed.
  9. There are to be no assemblies at reservoirs.
  10. Hairdressers and barbers can remain open for haircutting only. All tattooists and nail salons are to shut.

All these regulations will apply immediately when signed by the governor, which is expected to happen today.

Jetsada’s Cunning Plan – Drunk man asks to be jailed to escape his boss | The Thaiger

A man man in Chon Buri decided he needed a vacation, so he drank a bottle of whisky, walked into a police station and asked to be jailed. Puzzled police say the man thought jail would be a good way to get away from his boss.

According to Thai Residents the man is a construction worker on a site right across from the local police station. 37 year old “Jetsada,” from the lower northeastern Sisaket province came up with a the genius plan hoping to get a break from his boss. He believed prison would be a perfect location for a free stay, and probably some free food.

Jetsada intentionally drank an entire bottle of whisky, then headed to the police station on foot. When he arrived he told an officer he was drunk and asked to be arrested.

Police proceeded to give him a breathalyzer test and ask why he wanted to go to jail. The man revealed that his boss at the construction site “made him feel sad.” He just needed a vacation away from the boss, so jail would be a great option. He believed the boss would come and bail him out of jail when the news reached him.

The police knew Jetsada walked to the police station and the construction site was nearby. They told him they couldn’t arrest him as he didn’t do anything illegal.

Police say the man took a moment and sat pondering his ‘cunning plan’ at the police station. After a talk, he seemed to lighten up, and he returned to work, though how the rest of his day went is not known. Police admit that this was the first time a man intentionally got drunk and came to the station asking to be jailed.

A British man, aged 60, has been killed in a flying incident. He was flying when the paramotor developed engine troubles and plummeted into the ground in Bang Saray Tambon in Sattahip district, south of Pattaya.

Bang Saray police and rescuers from the Sawangrot Thammasathan Foundation were called to the crash site, that occurred in a grassy field near Moo 11 village.

The police reported that they found a seriously injured man lying on the ground near a black motorised parasail craft. He was wearing a green T-shirt and camouflage shorts.

The man was given immediate first-aid and then rushed to Wat Yanasangwararam hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Police questioned his colleagues, who said the man was flying his powered paraglider over the area in a training session, when the engine broke down. He tried to make an emergency landing, but was unsuccessful.
