Rescue workers are out on the Ping River today in Chiang Dao following news that a 49 year old man had been swept away.

According to relatives, the man was travelling from home to his lamyai farm on the other side of the river when he discovered the bridge swept away. He then decided to make the swim instead but hasn’t been seen since. Two kilometres of the river have been searched, but it is feared that they are now searching for a body.
