A delicate rescue operation was conducted on September 21 when the Sawang Boriboon Rescue Foundation responded to an emergency call informing them that a cow that had fallen into an abandoned well near the railway tracks in east Pattaya.
Volunteer rescue personnel armed with heavy equipment, including backhoes, arrived at the scene to assess the situation. Inside an old 1.5 meter deep well, previously utilized as a watering hole but now neglected and dilapidated, they discovered a trapped cow.
With meticulous precision, the rescue team secured the distressed cow using ropes and harnesses, and a backhoe was employed to safely hoist the animal from the well. The successful operation was met with jubilation, with cheers emanating from the relieved cow’s owner, Hasana Thongkham, and the assembled local residents who were witnessing the dramatic rescue.
Hasana Thongkham recounted her ordeal, emphasizing her exhaustive search for her missing cow. Eventually, she heard the animal’s distressing sounds emanating from the well, prompting her to seek urgent assistance. Despite her initial attempts to rescue the cow, it had regrettably slipped back into the well, compelling her to reach out to the Pattaya City Search and Rescue team.
