Dump worker dies in Sattahip


Authorities are uncertain what caused a trash collector to pass out and die at a Sattahip dump site.

Paramedics were called to a small hut near Taskin Maharaj Shrine on Soi Sukhumvit 41 Aug. 4 where they found the still body of Somai Hansopa, 42. He had only a cut over one eye that he suffered when he fell and hit his head.

Somai’s wife, Jamlong Boon-eim, 53, said she brought her partner of many years home from the Khao Petch dump where they worked after she found him unconscious.

She said she was out running errands at the time and did not know what caused him to fall.

She assumed he had been working too hard and fainted and hit his head.

The body will undergo a forensic examination to determine the cause of death.
