Daily News reports that the victim was wearing trousers and shoes when he was found. Laem Chabang police responded to the call with the Sawang Pratheep Sri Racha emergency response team.

The man’s body was floating 4 kilometres offshore and assessed as having been dead for at least four days.

He has been identified as Jason Williams. Daily News hasn’t reported how the ID was made. Mr Williams was wearing black trousers and black and red canvas shoes.

Police report that there were no injuries on the body. There were two tattoos on the body – a skull on the left wrist and a squid on the right shoulder.

Police say it was not yet possible to say how the victim died though they speculated that drowning looks likely. The Canadian embassy has been informed and relatives are being contacted.

A 4 metre long python has been carefully extracted from a car in Chon Buri’s central city district. It took rescue workers around 2 hours to locate and remove the reluctant reptile. Earlier, the snake was spotted by an unnamed local motorist, who stopped traffic to let the python safely cross Bypass Road in the Huay Kapi area. Afterwards it made its way to a car parked at a nearby house and slithered inside.

Rescue workers and a professional snake handler were called to remove the animal. Parts of the sedan had to be disassembled to get at the the snake, which had slithered deep into the vehicle.

Rescue staff report that the python was later released into a nearby forest, healthy and in good condition, but probably bemused from its day of vehicular adventures.

A woman whose vehicle ploughed into the back of another, causing it to flip upside down, says her vision was obscured by a garbage bag landing on her windscreen. 35 year old Supaphon Puttaraksa says she panicked and lost control of her car, crashing into another vehicle travelling in front of her.

That car was being driven by 55 year old Nidarat Sukkasirikan, who also had her child with her. She says she, too, lost control of her vehicle, causing it to flip over and land on its roof. Both she and her child escaped with only minor injuries.

The Pattaya News reports that local police and rescue workers arrived on the scene shortly afterwards. It is not known if any charges will be brought as a result of the accident.
