What value for a young woman's life? Negligent "foam party" organizer goes to dead woman's parents to beg forgiveness as bargaining begins

UDON THANI: -- The man who organized a Songkran foam party in Udon Thani where a 25 year old woman was electrocuted last week has gone to beg her parents for forgiveness.

 

At their house was Michael Beddoes the British husband of Suphaporn Beddoes who so tragically died at the party, reported Thai Rath.

 

Michael had flown to Thailand on hearing the news and was in tears yesterday as the stony faced parents of his young wife received Phaiboon Nilakhuha - known locally as Sia Meuk - who arrived to say sorry.

 

Sia Meuk said he had been organizing the event for years and nothing had gone wrong before.

 

Following the ceremony of forgiveness the bargaining for the value of the compensation for Suphaporn's life began.

 

Sia Meuk offered 200,000 baht but this was rejected by Duangjai Saengchart, 47, and Thienchai Wannawiset, 53, the mother and father.

 

They asked for one million baht to settle the matter.

 

Sia Meuk said he had no insurance and not enough money but as the negotiations dragged on he finally offered half a million.

 

But the parents stuck to their ground and said that they would take the matter to court.

 

It was therefore left unresolved.

Condolences to all and RIP for the young lady.

 

I wonder if the venue operator needed / had a license to conduct this type of party?

 

If it did need a license was there any form of inspection to approve that the set-up was safe, etc?

 

If it did need a license but none was applied for how come the appropriate authorities are not continuously checking things like this?

one would think the husband should be getting any settlement as is usual anywhere else. I understand the parents are upset but the husband is the direct next of kin then the parents.

Why even talk about settlement?  If you really value someone's life why not talk to lawyers on how justice can be served in order to prevent the same negligence over and over.   You may be helping many other lives from ending so sadly in doing so or at least if your daughter/wife is looking down at you, she will be at peace that you loved her enough not to let greed overcome what is the right thing to do.

What a croak of crap. Do all people place price tags on people`s lives? If it were my daughter no amount of money could ever convince me to lie this case to rest, even if I were dirt poor. First I would look into; was the organiser`s negligence really the cause of my daughter`s death. If not and this was just a tragic accident, then I would forgive the organisers, but if serious negligence were involved, then nothing short of a long prison sentence would satisfy my quest for justice and if not having the funds to take up my own case, then I would be fighting for justice for the rest of my life.

RIP young lady. Life has its price, what it is is a matter of opinion and he is simply trying to lower his civil cost. Will there be a criminal judgement to follow?

One question remains what was a married woman doing at a foam party without her husband?
