On March 30th, 2024, Thai national media reported a good deed of a Thai Navy sailor performing CPR on a Dutch expat who fainted inside his car at Sattahip shopping center, Marco, Sattahip, Chonburi.

According to Thai national media, the good citizen was publicly identified as CPO2 Niwat Khanghang who reportedly performed CPR on an unconscious Dutch expat whose name was later publicly identified as Mr. Zacharias Krokke.

Zacharias reportedly laid still inside his car and was unconscious while his Thai wife looked for help. CPO2 Niwat and his wife reportedly brought Zacharias to an open area with aid from nearby people. It was reported that Zacharias did not breathe and had no pulse.

However, CPO2 Niwat started performing CPR and urgently called 1669, a Thai emergency service hotline, before Zacharias could start breathing by himself and then had a weak pulse. But Zacharias stopped breathing again before a second round of CPR was performed by CPO2 Niwat.

Shortly after, an ambulance arrived at the incident scene and urgently transferred the unconscious Dutch expat to Queen Sirikit Hospital for immediate medical treatment.

As of press time, Zacharias was currently receiving medical treatment at Queen Sirikit Hospital in a cardiac care unit and his relative did not reveal his health condition.

According to Thai national media, CPO2 Niwat was a professionally trained volunteer rescuer from Arpakorn Kiattiwong Hospital, Sattahip Naval Base.
