Any excuse will do! Was the kid checked for alcohol and/or drugs?

..that big black dog again.

So age 61 is "elderly" now, eh coconuts? Typical ageist millenials...

I agree. Since when is 61 "elderly"? He's not even of pension age yet (65 typically). He's middle aged for chrissake OK? Anyone who can dive into a canal and pull a full grown drowning teenager from a canal is not yet "elderly" IMHO.

I wouldn't of thought that had anything to do with the topic!

(I know - you didn't start it! The guy with the dig about aluminium did!)

You mean "have" do you?  Yes, I am glad you noticed.

Jim is a retired schoolteacher from the UK and has been living in CM since at least 2012.  Very friendly and full of energy.  I can't imagine that he would appreciate being termed "elderly", although he likely wouldn't mind in this case.  

 

Yes, I do know Jim although I haven't seen him for quite some time as I'm no longer living in Thailand.  Well done Jim!

This photo might have been taken at another time.His heroic act of diving in the moat would I suggest leave him dripping wet

Maybe he walked across the surface...

At what age does 'elderly' begin in Thailand? From 57?  The proper term is middle-aged, late-middle age lasts until 75, whereupon the term elderly can be used.

I don't get the terminology. I'm nearly 49 but hardly feel 'middle-aged'...just a bit more grey hair but much the same as when I was younger! Retirement is 60 in Thailand but most government-retired Thais collect their pension then go and take another full time job.

The OECD life expectancy is 80 years, so you're saying your in late middle-age until 75? 

 

I think old and elderly are not exacts; I am 72 and I accept either as being descriptive; however, I think of myself as much younger and am told I act that way.  Just be yourself.

There is a video on CM108, but it is after it happened. Near School for the Blind , Suan Dokh Gate area.

Maybe this explains how the car ended up in the canal!
