A 36-year-old commander of the Royal Thai Navy was reported as the 17th death of the Mountain B club fire.

A report today has confirmed that a Naval officer, Pralitdet Chumngern, a 36-year-old commander of the Royal Thai Navy, has officially passed away peacefully at the Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok due to severe burns.
