webfact 167159 Posted March 31 Share Posted March 31 Daily News Thai Caption: Nearly lost his head One of the seven wonders of the ancient world were the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. These days Thailand has The Hanging Wires of The Streets. It's nothing to be proud of, however, and several years ago Bill Gates called out the country with some damning holiday snaps. This prompted Thai PM Prayuth Chan-ocha to spend billions on burying cables and wires - but mostly in tourist areas. Ordinary streets are still a complete tangle of wires. The latest victim of the wires was yet another innocent motorcyclist on his way home in Muang district of Nakhon Ratchasima in the north east. Theerawit, 18, nearly lost his head and became a "spirit protecting the roads" according to Daily News' colorful assessment in their headline. He came off his bike. He credited the fact that he was still alive with wearing a helmet and not going very fast. Nonetheless he went to the Muang district police with some of the cable and picture evidence to file a report. And ask the police to investigate and find those responsible for nearly killing him on Wednesday night. -- © Copyright ASEAN NOW 2023-03-31 - Cigna offers a range of visa-compliant plans that meet the minimum requirement of medical treatment, including COVID-19, up to THB 3m.
