Locust trader "cooked to a cinder" as high power electric cable comes loose at Cha-Am beach

A senior electrical officer told his bosses that a female trader sleeping on the sidewalk at Cha-Am beach had been electrocuted when a high power "arc" cable plummeted to the ground outside a 7/11.

 

The cable got entangled around 45 year old Somporn Petchpakdee's neck as she was "cooked to a cinder" on the sidewalk. 

 

The grisly information came in a Line group message from Suchart Kreuakaew to his PEA superiors. 

 

At 4.15 am Friday the Provincial Electrical Authority had received reports from consumers in the southern area of the seaside town of a power cut. 

 

The women - a trader in fried locusts - was found at 4.30 am. 

 

The incident happened by a 7/11 near the Saeng Thong condo. 

 

Somporn, from Phijit, usually slept elsewhere but she had had an argument with friends and chose the sidewalk to rest her head for the night. 

 

The body was being kept at the temple of Wat Tham Kaew, said Suchart. 

 

He had so far been unable to contact any relatives to offer them the standard compensation.

If very luck 2,500 THB and everything will be OK,no one needs to take responsibility.

below those power lines was probably 'her' spot, to catch the bugs, as they fall from the biggest bug zapper in town!

Poor women, scratching a living, sleeping on the streets & then killed by a falling power cable.

I hope she has a better life next time around!

Are you sure? I'd better re-evaluate my attitude, just cover all options. Ian Fleming didn't think so, he reckoned you only live twice.

No life after death? Those who think so will be surprised, no Heaven, no Hell, just a new life.

Mentally too.

The only spirits I'd be interested in would be single malt. Is that available in the 'spirit world' - aka the wine merchant?

What a sad commentary=  an innocent person dead due to the absolute carelessness of someone.  The deceased's family should be paid millions  and this incident should never happen in the 21st Century.

 

How many times have we read about transformers that blow up; electrical wires hanging so low that a pedestrian can touch them;  no grounding of electricity and people electrocuted.  in their homes.

 

It will continue until the authorities take some responsibility and vow to fix a system that so callously ignores human death.

 

Rest In Peace.

For those who do not believe in the here after, that is okay, the angel of death may give you a quick chance to change your mind... or not!   RIP to this unfortunate woman who met a quick end.

Geezer

So where is Ian Fleming now, then?

I think in this case it was more likely the 'angle of death' that was more on her mind.

Difficult to say, as I don't know if he was on his first or second life, as an author.
