A free diver was hunting for fish in Regional Irrigation Office 9’s reservoir in Sri Racha district, Chonburi, when he stumbled upon a body trapped inside a submerged sedan yesterday, January 5th.


The reservoir located in the Bang Phra subdistrict is overseen by Regional Irrigation Office 9. The fisherman, 29-year-old Mr. Witoon Boonprakom, was free diving for fish three meters deep and six meters away from the reservoir’s bank when he ran into a white Toyota Vios sedan at the bottom of the pond.


Mr. Witoon told local media that he initially had doubts about his discovery, so he resurfaced and dived back down to confirm that it was indeed a car. Once he was certain, he emerged from the reservoir and contacted the authorities.

There are more news sources than a brief cut and paste from Pattaya News.


Thairath provided more details: Thanasorn Prasad, 22, had driven from Phichit province to visit family in Chonburi province on 6 December 2022.

He was reported as missing to police on 8 December 2022.

It was not reported that "no one missed him", regardless, many adults could go uncontacted for ten days without necessarily raising alarm.

If I wasn't working, I wouldn't be missed.  lol.  10 days is nothing.   Sure, if I didn't pay rent they would eventually miss my MONEY, not me. lol.   


Yea, yea, sure many people would say they thought about me, but not enough to go looking for me. lol.   "friends" and "good friends" and "acquaintances" are not the same.


It's kind of the reason I came to Thailand.  lol. Back home, and a few years back, much, much different.....
