A 23-year-old woman fell down a manhole while walking to work with her co-workers on Tuesday morning near Bangkok’s Ratchadapisek subway station.

 

JS100 traffic radio station reported that Jetnipit (last name withheld) called the station for help at 8.37am, when she found herself plunged in 3-metre-deep foul-smelling, polluted water in the drain. A food vendor and motorcycle taxi driver helped pull the woman out of the drain and dropped her off at Paolo Hospital for treatment. 

 

Thamrongsak Takowit, chief of Huai Kwang District Office’s Thesakit law-enforcing division, told JS100 at 11am that he had inspected the scene and coordinated with the city’s drainage office to fix it. JS100 checked the site an hour later and reported that the broken manhole cover had been repaired.

Walking on Thai sidewalks can be hazardous to your health. Especially in the dark. Same goes for Vietnam.

How much compensation would she receive? 500B. Sounds like sewers with human waste!

how can anyone not see that hole in full daylight, esp. if the plastic cone and green chair were there? If she was glued to her phone, as I suspect, then well deserved.

Maybe on her phone messaging not looking where she was walking, who knows ?

At Northrop Grumman, a big USA aerospace defense company, "distracted walking incidents" are now the most common work place "accidents".
