Sanook reported that they had been contacted by Phairat, 40, an official of the RuamKatanyu rescue foundation after two motorcycles collided in the early hours of yesterday morning on Ngam Wong Wan road in Nonthaburi, north west of Bangkok.

 

Two women on a Yamaha were only slightly injured but the rider of a black Honda Phantom (Bangkok plate number 530) was found unconscious and rushed to Phra Nang Klao Hospital.

 

He is 69 year old Wiporn. 

 

Under his seat foundation workers found 121 winning lottery tickets from the October 16th draw. A total of 38 had the correct last two numbers and the others had the right first three and last three digits. 

 

The winning tickets - worth a total of 300,000 baht - have been deposited with the police for safe keeping.

 

Phairat requested the media to try and find the relatives of Wiporn who should contact the hospital or the police.

 

He said he did not know the current condition of the victim or whether his relatives were aware of what had happened to him

 

It is thought that Wiporn is a "yeepua" - a kind of agent that buys winning tickets for a commission - and was on his way early morning to the lottery office to reclaim winnings.

Yep! However, if you survive and want them back. Yeah, yeah, you have seen the donation box before, haven´t you?

A reasonable charge  for safe storage and return would  be expected.

Probably paid out 50%, so was out of pocket 150,000 baht and was counting the rest of his windfall before he found himself asleep in the proverbial deep sleep.  Poor man, hope he recovers.  Many of those that sold there tickets to him probably know how to find his family.
