Poor girl from Kanchanaburi in a desperate state - she lost her dad now lost her leg in a motorcycle accident

KANCHANABURI: -- An appeal has been started to help a 13 year old Kanchanaburi girl who has been dealt some serious blows in her short life.

 

Wanwisa Srijan - known as Ning Wi - lost her father then in December she was riding home on a motorcycle with friends when they were hit by a pick-up.

 

Her right leg had to be amputated to save her life.

 

The family are desperately poor and in a wad way. Their story tugged at the heartstrings of the Thai public when news was featured on Facebook.

 

Yesterday Thai Rath caught up with mother Samer Takong, 55, and Wi as they were husking corn to make ends meet.

 

Said mum: "She is a good kid - before the accident she was playful and talked a lot but that has all changed now. She hasn't come to terms with what happened to her".

 

She said that the pick-up driver has offered no help and the case has gone quiet with nothing being done to help the family who are very poor.

 

Mum goes out to work to try to get some money and there is an elder brother but it is inadequate for the family's needs.

 

Wi had to leave her old school and is now at Wat Luuk Kae Prachanuthit School where director Banjong Pinpathom said that they are giving her free lunch. Representations have been made to the local education authority to get her school fees paid.

 

Wi bravely thanked everyone for their help so far but she lamented in tears that had the driver not hit her everything would have been different.

 

If you would like to help Nong Wi an account at Ormsin Bank has been set up in her name - Wanwisa Srijan.. The account is controlled by the family and teachers at her school and has the number 020 219 732 698.

Their system has failed her.

A 13 year old driving on a motorbike with friends (plural) is an accident waiting to happen. And to publish the bank details is only asking for some thief to empty the account quickly.

Indeed it seems to have.

I'm wondering why the insurance company/ies have not paid or offered to pay some compensation to her family. Isn't that why we carry insurance..........just for these occasions? Of course, I am being bold in assuming he even had insurance. I wish her well and expect P.M. Prayuth to say that the government is cracking down hard on uninsured drivers. No insurance, we takee your vehicle or your home..

It is called being dirt poor and probably having little or no public transportation as for the other comment, don't talk rubbish.

Is it not conceivable that she was apassenger on the motorbike? It didn't actually say she was driving it, although, knowing the number of teenagers under the legal age who drive motorbikes, I wouldn't be surprised.

No licence, three on a bike, so insurance is invalid if they had any.

More likely the pickup driver wasn't at fault so they only expected help because they were poorer, not because of any legal obligation.

Well if she was underage and no license or insurance for her to drive the motorbike I suppose they are not required to pay anything.

The middle school across the street from me has about 200 motorbikes parked in front of it every morning.  And in the afternoon 3-4 students pile on per bike and race off.  There is a police stand right in front of the school as well.

If only they would ride a bicycle.

Time for police to stop underache drivers  , but it will never happen.

13 y old , she had better stayed home taking care of her child ?

School ?.......did not teach her what she really had to know .

And Buddha nor a tattoo prevented the evident outcome ?

She's one of the thousands in the same situation.........................

If my children behave like that .....they gone get the same  ....

Nothing new
