NAKHON SAWAN, Nov 9 (TNA) – Rescue workers hauled a sports utility vehicle up from the Chao Phraya River after it plunged into the water and its driver drowned four days ago.
The SUV was pulled up with a big rope by a backhoe from a section of the six-meter-deep riverbed about 200 meters from a bank.
It belonged to Theerapat Teerawongpaiboon, a 27-year-old native of Suphan Buri province, from a family that is a big supplier of farming tools in Suphan Buri.
It was reported that Theerapat drove his vehicle as guided by a navigation system into the river through a dark opening from a road near the Chao Phraya River in Muang district on the night of Nov 5. His body was found on Nov 8 about 15 kilometers from the drowning scene.
Provincial authorities were investigating the case to determine if any governmental organization should be held responsible for the tragedy. (TNA)
