Siam Chon News reported that fire services attended after a transformer exploded into flames in Walking Street, Pattaya last night amid heavy storms.

 

But rather than cordoning off the scene it was simply left until morning for electrical authorities to sort out.

 

Wires were hanging and exposed.

 

Panumat, 28, said no one thought it was still dangerous.

 

He said he saw a male pedestrian felled by a bolt of electricity.

He got up then was struck again.

 

Sawang Boriboon found the man in a pool of blood as the rain lashed down and sparks flew.

 

They gave first aid then transported him to hospital.

words fail me ....  

" left until morning for electrical authorities to sort out. Wires were hanging and exposed. "

 

someone should be hammered for this if true .... what the heck were the utilities / and authorities thinking ?

why didn't the fire brigade call the PEA / or if they did, why didn't the PEA attend and disconnect power ?

 

something is missing in this story .... who was in charge at the time ?

More accurately, leave off the last 4 words of that. Moronic!

They should hold the people who did not take care that the wires were gone or no power on it. If they dont punish someone and fine the companies responsible nothing will ever change.

It's pretty standard , I've seen loads of dodgy looking live wires over the years

When I tell a Thai about it , they invariably say "Mai bpen rai"

I saw the exact same post as that the other day

It was in an article from 1971

Says it happened at 2Am  so obviously when he recovers they will charge him with breaking curfew 😋

yes .... if he got electrocuted at 10.59pm he would be fine.

If the HT wires were left dangling every time they hit the ground they will kick back up and discharge an HT current into the ground and  can travel for several meters along the ground and kill anyone standing within that area. 

 

Saw this first hand when one of my 3phase HT lines was severed by lighting, the broken cable thrashed around on the ground and the ground induced transients killed a dog that walked into the area but still about ten meters away from where the cable was thrashing around.

It was raining, the fire brigade didn't want to get wet

Besides we do fires not electricity

Mr CP wants more quality tourists into thailand.....that's so thai, thinking they belong to the best destinations while they even can't build a safe sidewalk...there's danger from above, beneath, left and right.....better go to Europe folks where all is safe and perfekt and even cheaper.

RIP Mr. Panumat

FUBAR most of the time
