The body of a man was found in the moat following a 20 minute search by the Ruam Jai Rescue Service on the morning of the 31st October near Chang Phuak Gate.

The 43 year old man from Fang District was homeless, according to a friend of his. The pair had been drinking by the moat that morning when the deceased tried to convince him to go swimming with him. He didn’t want to swim so stood there watching his friend, but after a few minutes, he disappeared under the water. When his friend jumped in to save him, he too flailed as he couldn’t swim, but managed to get to safety.
