Police and Sawang Boriboon rescuers tied a rope around Sirisak Chanduaykij, 21, and pulled him to safety Aug. 5 on the decorative bridge near Pattaya School No. 7. Threatening to jump, he’d dropped down to a support rail then couldn’t return to the platform without help.
Police and Sawang Boriboon rescuers use rope to pull Sirisak Chanduaykij to safety on the decorative bridge near Pattaya School No. 7.
Sirisak was upset after a fight with his girlfriend, who didn’t come to see his likely non-fatal plunge from the five-meter overpass. But the excitement did a number on his mother, Nittaya Sriwamna, 40, who required her own medical treatment after fainting.
Nittaya promised to pay closer attention to her lovelorn son from now on.
