Late on the night of the 24th a man was rescued from the Ping River opposite Ton Lamyai Market after an attempted suicide.
The 44 year old man is a clothes salesman and told rescue workers that his business had to close down recently. He said that the person he loved had also been bullying him constantly and he had gone for a walk along the river. However, he said, he was bullied again by someone who grabbed his shoes and wallet and threw them into the Ping.
He had had enough, he said, and decided to end it all.
His family is seeking treatment for him.
