Pattaya: Three burnt alive in horror smash - but five year old in "miracle" survival

Thai caption: Only the young one escaped death

 

Good Samaritans on the scene of a car crash near Pattaya in the early hours of Sunday morning tried desperately to save the lives of three people inside a burning Nissan Note.

 

There was a man and a woman and a boy inside the car that had snapped a lamppost and ended up in the central reservation. 

 

One of the rescuers, Chairat, 26, said that the woman was still conscious and was told to close her eyes as the rescuers attempted to smash a window. There was already a small fire.

 

But suddenly the fire rapidly took hold and beat back the rescuers who could only try and put out the flames with water thereafter. 

 

The three people inside succumbed in the fire.

A five year old boy who was thrown clear in the accident survived with only minor injuries in what 77kaoded said was a miracle escape. He was taken to Bang Lamung hospital. 

 

The accident happened around 5am on Route 331 heading towards Chacherngsao.

 

Huay Yai police examining markings on the road suggested that the driver of the car had fallen asleep behind the wheel before hitting the lamppost.

A "miracle" that he, unrestrained, survived being thrown from the vehicle.

 

As a consequence only 3 out of 4 people died.

 

"Not quite a total catastrophe" is more like it.

Life is just so unpredictable. 

 

RIP to those that have passed, horrible way to go, and I hope the little one recovers from their wounds and that relatives are around to care for the kid.

 

As for the emotional trauma from the loss of child's parents, we can only hope that fades in time and the child has a life that can best described as filled with love and happiness.

Sad story. Lucky boy.

 

I practice 'Intermittent Driving' in Thailand now. Only on the road 0800 - 1800. Doesn't affect my weight but I feel a whole lot safer. (True).

AVOID long distance night drives at all cost!!!

It seems from statistics Thais have an ability to sleep behind the wheel at any time...

I hope the extended family take good care of the orphan boy!

RIP

Somewhere there is a statistic that I paid little heed to stating that a large % of road accidents are within minutes of home. I was struck by a car from behind on my bicycle less than 100 meters from my house.

In the UK they said that 70% of collisions happen within 10 miles of home. That’s because the majority of journeys fall within that radius and don’t usually involve motorways, which are statistically much safer than normal roads.

I refuse to drive any of my bikes at night now, other than going to 7-11 300 meters down the road, 

Who has been insisting you ride at night such that you have to now refuse?

Listen Mate...If you are on here (TVF) you are like the majority of us a  a "Coffin Dodger"......Most of us have been in and/or seen all kinds of accidents,

 

I have just turned 62, November 5th. I rode mortorbikes in the UK and lost many friends.....I also lost many young friends in car accidents!

 

I have been directly involved in a few...mostly not my fault!

 

When it is your time it will happen.

 

I never drive in the dark here, except motorbike to 7/11 or Family Mart.....300 yards each way from my place.

 

<deleted> drivers and bikes and even Cars driving at night with no lights sometimes, can only lead to Disaster!

 

But get a LIFE!...

 

Try Bhuddism if you're that worried!

 

But the story is it depends on what you do in this life as to what your reincarnation may be!

 

So be a good boy!:thumbsup: xxx
