UDON THANI: -- A British man has gone on Facebook to say a sad farewell to his young wife who was tragically electrocuted at a foam party held last week in Ban Dung, Udon Thani.

 

Suphaporn Beddoes or "Tu", 25, was married to Michael Beddoes who changed his profile picture and expressed his deep regret:

 

"I miss her so much," he wrote. "Will be in my heart forever. RIP tilac".

 

The victim's mother Duangjai Saengchart said her daughter was planning to go to the UK after Songkran to be with her husband.

 

Kapook reported earlier that the family were unhappy that the organizers of the event where she died had offered the family just 20,000 baht in compensation.

Very sad to hear of the untimely death of a young girl. If this was an organised event and the death was caused by negligence in leaving bare wires exposed, then 20,000 Baht is totally insufficient. No amount of money can replace a life, but at 25, the lady had many years of working life left in her. I hope they get sued and an appropriate award made, plus criminal charges if serious negligence can be shown.

That is such a sad story.

If health and safety was/is an issue in this county, then possibly the death of such a young person may not have happened plus the deaths of countless others!

Life seems very cheap here.

Safety comes far after profit.

Unfortunately this story is not uncommon in southern Asia.

 

People only think of how can they do something and not if it is safe.

 

From the guys that spread insecticide in their bare feet and no mouth covering to the road side shop that gets electricity by wrapping an extension cord around the hydro line.

 

There is little if any safety knowledge training of people.  

 

OH yeah my best one was a guy using his toes to hold the copper  so he could cut an intricate design with a coping saw.

 

Unfortunately it is easier and cheaper for businesses to pay if there is an oops than it is to do it the right way.  Remember the greatest resource these countries like Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and many ASEAN countries have is people.

You need to be careful when it's wet outside and look for traps everywhere, electrocution happens almost weekly in Thailand.   RIP.

Thai electrics/electricians are dodgy at the best.

Mix with water and well, we know the rest.

Hope to organisers or whoever is responsible pays dearly. And not just a few thousand in hush money!

Absolutely tragic. I don't know the full circumstances behind this, but I hope that the organizers are made accountable. Another case of a very preventable "accident" that so sadly cut her life too short.

Every year several tourists die as aresult of poor elevtrical work, some times even at 5 star resorts, as was the case last year with some Russians and then again in BKK two teen boys. Shame on the people that build these resorts and organizers of such foam events. Stay away from such places
