Illegal foreigners "nearly barbecued" as they were being deported

Caption: Fifty three escaped being barbecued

 

Daily News reported that 53 illegal migrants from Myanmar were lucky to escape death when their double-decker bus was engulfed in flames on the way to Mae Sot, Tak in Thailand's north west. 

 

The migrants had all entered Thailand illegally and were being deported on an immigration chartered bus.

 

Captain Rewat Iamtak of the Mae Sot police and Mae Thor rescue and fire services responded to put out the blaze - they were helped by drizzle in the area at the time on Sunday. 

 

All escaped unharmed though the vehicle was gutted. 

 

The migrants had driver Maraphee Sulong, 50, to thank after he noticed fire under his vehicle and ordered a roadside evacuation.

 

Daily News said in their headline that the migrants were "nearly barbecued like chicken".

Due to taxi guys taking you anywhere or refuse to use meter or drvie you to a certain destionation, that´s out of the question.

 

Minivan drivers are the definition of a death trap. That´s out of the question.

 

Now, buses are starting to engulf in flames more often, maybe time to stop that option too.

See, soon everybody have a reason to be on overstay, out of the reason that common transportation might lead to death or worse.

At least it makes a change from brake failure.

 

Or was the conflagration caused by overheating brakes?

 

Brake fluid is a fire hazard!

Trust Immigration to get a dodgy bus company  to deport aliens.  BAD
