A Surin man walking from Rayong to Bangkok to honor HM the late King’s legacy fell short of his goal when he collapsed in exhaustion in Sattahip.
Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan medics provided first aid for Wattana Urailum, 35, who had been walking while holding a portrait of HM King Bhumibol and a Thai flag over his head Dec. 4.
His intended destination was the Dusit Palace, but he collapsed with shortness of breath and vomiting in front of the Tatan Public Health Center in Sattahip.
He had been walking for about a day in hot weather.
Wattana said he was disappointed he was unable to complete his journey, but said he intends to be loyal to the monarchy and royal family for the rest of his life.
