A 16 year old boy who went swimming with his two friends in Mae Kuang Dam drowned yesterday, after telling his friends to call rescue service if he didn’t return in twenty minutes. Rescue service think that this was an accident and his parting words merely a coincidence, though his two friends also said that he was visibly drunk. His body was recovered by divers half an hour after they arrived.
Today, another tragedy occurred in Mae Wang, when a 19 year old man drowned while playing in the river with his friends. His friends said that he slipped under the water and was not seen again. It was only when rescue services came that they discovered his body.
