It was heartbreak for two parents when they found that the child they had come to pick up from kindergarten had drowned because the school did not have enough teachers to watch over all the children.

 

The incident took place on Wednesday (July 8 ) in Sa Kaeo province, and Wang Nam Yen police was notified of the tragedy at 10am.

 

Officers arrived at the school to inspect the bodies of two young students of the Ban Tha Tasi School, which had been fished out of the pond by villagers. 

 

The children, identified as Thanakorn, three, and Peerawat, four, were believed to have been dead for more than an hour. They were students of Anuban 1 and Anuban 2, classes that did not have a supervisor.

 

Ban Tha Tasi School’s management said that since the school has just reopened, and they did not have enough staff to watch over all the children. The bodies were found by an older child who had gone hunting for the two and found them floating in the pond. 

 

The parents said they were not angry and understood that their children must have been mischievous, while the school promised to be more cautious to prevent a similar tragedy.

So everything sorted out then. Nothing like a story with good ending. 👍

very tragic indeed. Nothing anyone can say or blame will bring the little one's back.

I hope the parent's can eventually find the strength in their hearts to get through this horrible ordeal.

Such a sad story, the poor kids. RIP. In Vietnam the doors of kindergartens are closed and locked until the parents arrive. Obviously not the same here.

Disgraceful behaviour by the school.

If they don't have the staff to watch them, the kids shouldn't be there.

 

Disgraceful by somebody, but if the government ordered the school to open, who's to blame? 

 

I suspect that, all over Thailand, there are businesses and agencies running short handed because their employees went back home to live with family while they had no paycheck rolling in, and can't be available at their work location until they sort out transportation, a place to live, etc.

 

But if the gub'ment says "open up", the schools have very little choice but to open up and do the best they can with whoever's on hand.

Closure is peace.

Before slinging mud at anyone, consider a story from 52 years ago.  An American husband/wife were at a party at a regional Thai governor's house with their young son.  The party was going on indoors and out.  The wife was in the house thinking the son was with the husband.  The husband thought he was with the wife.  The son drowned in a klong behind the governor's house.  The mother, who was pregnant with her second child, lost that child soon after birth.
