"Thai man with the heart of an angel" reunites Chinese child with anguished parents

Recommended Posts

Not to take anything away from this good Samaritan's efforts, but you remember that Malian immigrant who scaled 4 stories up the face of a Paris apartment building to rescue a child dangling on a ledge? You remember how Macron rewarded him with French citizenship for his efforts?

 

Can't help wonder if some foreigner on overstay rescued a kid from a burning building or did something heroic like that, would Thailand reward him with a Elite Visa or something? Probably asking too much, huh? He'd be lucky if his overstay fines were waived, or if he got to stay in the VIP lounge at Suwannaphumi on his way to getting deported.

They might even fine him for working illegally.

Two times I found a crying baby on beach could not find they parents I walked up and down on beach to find them both times i found their parents sit on beach drunk and really don't care about their babies 

This man has a good heart but parents should be more careful about looking after their child

The child was under the supervision of the grandmother.

Bet granny felt dreadful, but now relieved of babysitting duties

500 Baht and one of those Brand's Chicken Essence baskets. In order to claim the reward the foreigner would need to attend hundreds of hours of photo sessions with endless government officials.

 

Then an overzealous immigration or police officer would demand to see his passport.

... And they all rode home on a motorbike without a helmet between them and lived happily ever after.

Heart of an angel?  He could have been accused of kidnapping if anyone saw him en route to the cop shop.
