Mate buries unconscious man in sand thinking that will make him come round from electric shock

A construction worker who found his friend unconscious thought he had suffered an electric shock.

 

So, according to ancient beliefs, he buried his pal up to his neck in sand to enable him to come round.

 

When this didn't work he called the hospital.

 

Medics from Burapha University Hospital tried a more modern method, CPR, but Sakon Chaodorn, 40, from Udon Thani was dead.

 

The incident happened at a building site in Chonburi where workers are extending a department store.

 

Khanom Yotchaiphoom, 56, said his mate had taken Monday off as he had blown his wages on a drinking binge and couldn't face work.

 

He was due back at work yesterday but Khanom saw him staggering then fall down. He believed he had had an electric shock and so he decided to bury him in sand as he believed that would help him recover.

 

But it didn't work so he called the hospital who were unable to help his friend, reported Thai Rath.

 

Saensuk police found no injuries on the body.

But remember, never mock or criticize someone's superstitious beliefs. That way things like this can keep happening. Feelings are more important than others' physical well-being.

Ancient beliefs for electrical shock? Would love to hear that one.

Lightning strikes? In modern times, this belief could have been given credence by those mysterious 3rd wires going into the ground.

Thales of Miletus, a greek philosopher, discovered Static Electricity in 500 b.c.

ฺBuried him in sand, then when that didnt work he called the hospital!!!

Where on earth do people like that get their brains from? A LAO KAO BOTTLE probably.

An act of false information. (What do you expect in this society?)

But also an act of love - try to help him.

 

I wouldn't look down on this guy

Indeed he did and he and Michael Faraday would have got along like  a magnet and iron.
