Siam Chon News reported on what they said was a pitiable case. 

 

They had come across a 70 to 80 year old Western man slumped in a wheelchair at Pattaya police station. 

 

The Thai public coming to do business at the police station were aghast and wanted the police to act. 

 

The didn't know what to do or say so got out their phones to record the man's plight. 

 

He was clearly in a state of distress, they said. 

 

Nearby on a chair were his soiled clothes and some shoes. They were unwearable. 

 

The media claimed he had been there for three to four days.

 

Posts on the story indicated that he was later picked up by social services and taken away in an ambulance.

 

Many posts from Thais on the story condemned the police for not acting sooner with several claiming they wouldn't help unless there was something in it for them.
