Burmese factory worker electrocuted to death in Sri Racha

Sri Racha, Chonburi —

A 40-year-old Burmese factory worker was electrocuted to death in Sri Racha reportedly while working.

Piao Yeang Tai rescue workers were called to assist a man who was electrocuted and passed out at 6 p.m. yesterday, August 18th, in the Bueng subdistrict of Sri Racha, Chonburi.

The rescue workers met with the victim who appeared to be a Burmese man at a gas station. He was lying motionlessly on a truck bed of his friends and suffered two dark burn wounds to his left hand and left foot. The rescue workers then checked his pulse and pronounced him dead at the gas station amid his mournful friends.

The man’s name was revealed later as La Ton, 40. His friends stated that he worked at a factory and was electrocuted while working around 4 p.m. yesterday. His friends tried to admit him to a local clinic but were reportedly turned down, so they desperately called a rescue service and waited at a gas station. La, however, could not withstand his injuries and die.

His body was transported in Piao Yeang Tai rescue service’s ambulance to Laem Chabang Hospital for an autopsy. The name of the factory was not given, according to reports.

It was not immediately clear if an investigation would take place on the cause of the death or why a clinic allegedly refused to assist.
