Woman upset with daughter jumps down a well

KRABI: Krabi locals yesterday reported a woman jumping into a well behind Ao Leuk Police Station.

“Sawat Bootkrajong, 59, reportedly jumped into the five-meter-deep well, due to a domestic dispute involving her daughter’s return to her hometown in Ratchaburi,” said Pornthip Paklang of the Ao Leuk rescue team.

Rescue workers spent about 40 minutes negotiating with Ms Sawat, before convincing her to climb back up with the help of a lowered rope.

Ms Sawat was not seriously injured.

“The attempted suicide thankfully ended with Ms Sawat ‘taking the high ground’ – literally,” Mr Pornthip added.

“Ms Sawat is now safe and has returned home to her husband.”
