Thai caption: He meant well...but things turned out bad

 

Pattaya police and Sawang Boriboon rescue services were called to Sohotown on Pattaya 2 Road after a Chinese man was electrocuted while repairing an LED sign. 

 

Liu Zhanlin, 37, was unconscious on supports next to the 5 meter tall sign.

 

The rescue services managed to get him down with ropes and he was given CPR. He was taken to hospital in a coma, reported 77kaoded. 

 

A witness called Apatsawan, 36, said that the Chinese owner of a bird's nest soup restaurant had asked his friend to go up and fix the faulty sign as he was an expert in such matters.

After repairs the sign was switched on for a test but the Chinese man - called a tourist in the story - was still high up next to it. 

 

He was electrocuted and slumped unconscious. 

 

An investigation is underway utilizing the expertise of other experts.

Seems from the story that the shop owner turned the power on too soon.

Had the house re-wired a few years ago.

Bought rolls of red, black and green wire plus 3  2metre copper earth rods.

Local expert wanted only to use red and black because green earth wire and ground spikes 'not need in Thailand'

Expert replaced after 1st day.

The earth on the house I used to have was a wire connected to the reo sticking out of one of the columns. Good enough I suppose.55

You could have checked it easily by having a p on it. 😆

Never heard the joke about the old lady who said her phone never really worked right but when her dog used to bark 'once' the phone would be ok for a good while.

Think about it.

may he RiP.
(since it was written electrocuted, if not electrocuted, wish him speedy recovery.)

helping out an acquaintance who could not wait to see the result of his work and switched power on while he was still working.

A quick Google search will reveal that electrocuted does not necessarily mean the person died.
