Two workers have died and another three remain in critical condition after allegedly inhaling toxic fumes when they were cleaning a boat-restaurant’s engine room.

The vessel was anchored at a pier off Chon Buri province yesterday.

Muang Pattaya precinct superintendent Pol Colonel Apichai Krobphetch led a rescue team to head tot he scene of the incident at 11.30am.

They found the five workers who had reportedly passed out while cleaning the engine room of the Nava Chakkapat.

At this stage it’s believed they all succumbed to toxic fumes, as the ventilation system had not been switched on.

When police and emergency responders arrived they found one worker dead at the scene, and another died whilst being rushed to hospital.

The names of the victims have not been released at this stage. Police are investigating the incident to determine the cause of death before deciding on any further legal action.

Belarusian ‘sex trainer’ deported from Thailand | The Thaiger

Anastasia Vashukevich, aka. Nastya Rybka, the Belarusian model who claimed she had ‘dirt’ on Donald Trump and Russian efforts to help win the US Presidency, has been shipped off to the airport and deported from Thailand.

She was convicted of participating in a “sex training course”.

“I want to get a bed. I want to get a bed so much! I have been sleeping on the floor for nine months. Now, here, in the IDC (Immigration Detention Centre), I’ve got a pillow. I am awaiting my deportation, so I’ve got a pillow here. You cannot imagine how happy it makes me feel”, she told Sputnik News in a phone interview from Thailand.

Along with seven others, she has been languishing in a Bangkok jail since police raided their ‘sex classes’  last February in Pattaya.

Vashukevich claimed she had travelled to Thailand after becoming embroiled in a political scandal with Russian aluminium tycoon Oleg Deripaska, a one-time associate of Trump’s former campaign director Paul Manafort. She then expanded the story with her promises to reveal details about Russian involvement in the 2016 US Presidential campaign, none of which could be verified.

According to AFP, Vashukevich pleaded guilty alongside seven others to multiple charges, including solicitation and illegal assembly at a Pattaya court on Tuesday. The court wound up the proceedings demanding the group be deported.

Vashukevich, along with most of her ‘sex training class’ associated boarded an Aeroflot flight for Moscow this afternoon.

Surachate Hakparn, the Immigration Chief, says the rest of the group would leave the country tonight.

Throughout the past year Vashukevich has pleaded with Thai authorities not to send her back to Russia saying that she would be in danger. She has more than 120,000 Instagram followers and has written a book about seducing Russian oligarchs.
