The Thai Labor Ministry gave one-million-baht compensation to the family of a Mountain B’s manager who reportedly sacrificed his life to save customers.
Suthep Chitayawong, secretary to the Minister of Labor, on Monday, August 8th, visited the family of Wiriya Tangsanga, the 31-year-old manager of the Mountain B club who reportedly returned inside to save the customers before dying in the blaze.
According to many eyewitnesses, Wiriya rushed back inside the blazing pub after initially escaping to try to save as many customers as possible; however, it ultimately cost his own life as he could not make it out again.
Benjamaporn Klaisang, the heroic manager’s mother, received 50,000 baht from the Thai Labor Ministry to help with funeral arrangements and one million baht for her son’s casualty compensation.
Benjamaporn thanked the authorities for not overlooking her loss. She said that her heart was broken as soon as she heard that her son was found dead just before the front gate after trying to save other victims. But after all, she said she was proud that her son tried to fulfill his duty till the very end.
