An investigation is underway in Sattahip, Chonburi after more than 500 syringes and blood collection tubes were found floating in the sea in the Samaesan area.

 

The authorities had been alerted after a post on a popular site called "Mor Lab Panda" on Facebook. Fears were expressed that the items might be infected with diseases.

 

Reporters spoke to the local phoo yai ban Natthapong who said that he had contacted health authorities and speedboat operators to come and collect the mass of medical equipment.

Local authority leader Mr Adul said this was most irregular - the area is known for having a lovely clean seaside, he said.

 

It is thought that the items came from a beauty clinic or regular clinic.

 

An investigation is underway to try and determine how the equipment found its way into the sea.

No need for an investigation,somebody threw it into the sea.

to save money by not disposing of them properly.

Why would a beauty clinic be taking blood?

Possibly they do a bit of brain surgery on the side!

...and by inference, NOT from the large, prestigiously named hospital nearby.
