Boy, 12, killed by train after playing on his phone on the tracks

A twelve year old boy was killed instantly when a Bangkok bound train hit him on the tracks near his school in Hat Yai in Thailand's south. 

 

Locals said they saw the boy sitting on the tracks totally absorbed in his phone.

 

The next thing they heard were several sounds on the horn from Express 46. 

 

But the boy failed to heed the warnings. He was dragged 40 meters away by the train that had left Padang Besar bound for the capital. 

 

The boy was named as Watanyu Disro, a P6 student at Tatong Foundation school in Tatong.

I am sure that he didn't have to sit there and play with the phone. I'm thinking the the young bloke may have had enough of this world. 

Rest in peace son praying for your family.

Unfortunately, the lack of common sense in Thailand is total. I've been here for over 25 years and never seen any sign of it. I find it quite amazing that a country can exist without it, and of course many people in the country do not survive without it. This is just one example.

We must remember that common sense as we know it does not exist here, common sense is somthing you aquire during life, life here has no rules therefore the common sense here is all ****** up

RIP young man - very sad indeed. It could be possible he suffered from hearing difficulties and was unable to hear the locomotive's horn.

When sitting on the tracks it was possible for him to feel the train coming by the vibrations being felt where his brain was located.

'nuf sed.
