Top government members have expressed their condolences after over the 30 police who were injured while attempting to control a protest that turned violent last night, with one officer succumbing to a heart attack despite the efforts of his colleagues to save him.

 

Pol Cpt Wiwat Sinsert, 47, of Thammasala Metropolitan Police Station experienced a fatal heart attack while performing riot control during last night’s political protest. Fellow police performed CPR on the officer before he was sent to Rajavithi Hospital, but all efforts were unable to revive him.

 

Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha and Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan have both sent their condolences over the tragic loss, with the PM instructing the Royal Thai Police Office and all police commanders to care for their subordinates and maintain regulations. He also offered encouragement to the family of the fallen officer.

 

DPM Gen Prawit voiced his sadness over the incident while explaining that rubber bullets were employed during the scuffle in proportion to its severity. He assured police were acting in accordance with procedure and stated they would continue to watch over protests without military involvement.

 

The Erawan Center concluded that a total of 33 people were sent to hospital following the incident, 23 of which were police with the other 10 being civilians. Of the total, 22 were sent to the Police General Hospital, 7 were sent to Rajavithi Hospital, 2 to Ramathibodhi Hospital, 1 to Rama 9 Hospital and 1 to Chulalongkorn Hospital.

"might wonder if the above statement was entirely accurate"

very, very unlikely if experience counts for anything.

A reputable news source, which I cannot quote, reports that the policeman who died was suffering from heart disease.

 

One wonders why, in that condition, was he deployed on riot control duties - very much a young fit mans game!

luckily they didn't attribute the policeman's death to the Corona Virus .... RIP

that was the first time police officially admitted to using bullets, which is an escalation of violence.

Guess if you (Prayut) were democatically elected and were not the junta leader to take away democracy from Thailand and allowed free speech etc this would not have happened. I said many years ago when this guy did the coup d'etat he would never leave. I also said blood will be shed in a popular uprising to get rid of him and his military cronies. I will be intersted to see what happens across SEA and it's dictators in the future. Myanmar may well be a catalyst.
