A well known street performer known as the Dancing Grandma who works on Walking Street in Pattaya told local reporters that she was very much alive and well and that rumors of her death were false.
The rumors of her death came after a still unidentified but believed to be homeless woman was struck and killed on Beach Road early yesterday morning in a hit and run incident.
Some media sources and social media incorrectly reported that the woman was Bunthi Srimanirat, who for many years has danced up and down Walking Street for tips and money and is a well known local street performer.
Bunthi laughed off the incorrect statements and said she felt “Great”, her health was great and she was looking forward to returning to street performing when Walking Street reopened. The world famous nightlife street remains closed due to government precaution around the Covid19 Coronavirus situation.
She even gave reporters a dance and said she was practicing new moves during the downtime and ready to perform for locals and tourists once again soon.
