CityNews – 2.30am on 30th January 2020, Ping Nakorn rescue workers rushed to the scene of an accident where a car had crashed into the Irrigation Canal, fearing deaths. On arrival, they found a Mitsubishi car upside down in the canal. There were two men, aged around 25-30 years at the scene; one had escaped the car, while the other was still stuck inside. After he was released from the vehicle and givenĀ  aid before being rushed to hospital. It was on January 2nd last year that celebrity, ‘Centemetre’ plunged to death along the same stretch of the canal. The two men are fortunate, say rescue workers, that the canal was virtually empty at the time, or they too may have drowned. The public is urged to drive carefully along the canal, especially after dark.
