The bodies of four firemen who tragically died in a horrifying building collapse yesterday were recovered in the early hours of this morning, April 4th, the director of the Thawi Watthana District Office announced today.
District office director Pornlert Phensap told the Associated Press that the rescue officials had successfully recovered all the dead bodies from the collapse in a village of Krisada Nakhon 31 at around 6:30 AM today.
The staff of the district office arrived at the scene as soon as the end of the recovery to clean up the debris and the surrounding area. They also announced an official prohibition from entering the area for safety reasons.
According to a building owner representative, the owner is still living abroad but said that he would order the building demolition of the remains as quickly as possible. However, the dismantling has to proceed after the police have finished examining the area and gathering additional evidence.
The initial official investigation revealed that the building construction started in 2011 and finished in 2012 under a legalized 3-story construction permission. However, the police are still investigating to examine whether the building was constructed according to the plan, expecting to complete the inspection within the next week.
Bangkok officials have provided 100,000 baht compensation each to all families of the four deceased as they are truly considered heroes who volunteered to help others. The families will also receive other support from the government and other related departments as much as possible, Pornlert stated.
