Thai Rath reported that a 33 year old crane operator was electrocuted after his vehicle came into contact with power lines.

 

They said Nakorn Phalapree from Kalasin was "burnt to a cinder".

 

He was found by Phra Samut Chedi, Samut Prakarn cops lying by the front right wheel of his crane.

 

A member of the public had already taken his friend Jirasak Kesa, 58, to hospital. He had burns to his leg after trying to save his workmate.

 

Witness Chairat Chalongdaeng, 40, said the crane operator was dismantling metal pieces from a disused factory in Soi Highland.

 

Due to not taking care of the electrical wires his crane hit them and sent the current into the cab.

 

Police are investigating and talking to those in charge of the operation.

Booms like that are not operated from inside the cab.

You could have also warned them about the danger, but then you wouldn't end up with a good video of course 😉

He could also have shown them how to get the top off a bottle of sauce if he had the time and patience

They were totally aware of what they were doing and saw the lift arm right next to the power lines. That is the scary part.

No thats the good part

The photos don't seem to match. The boom looks fairly heavy duty....a real crane...... Much bigger than you would expect to be truck mounted.

I've noticed a pretty disturbing trend here lately with various "incidents" -- major crashes, accidents, brawls, etc etc.

 

Instead of helping the victims, calling for help or trying to stop the dispute, I keep seeing crowds of Thais who respond to these kinds of things by all getting out their phones and start filming videos to share....

 

IMHO, there's something seriously wrong with that.

Nothing wrong with keeping the masses informed and entertained in some cases

They will do far less damage in most cases with just filming

As you clearly find this man's nasty death very amusing do you think that's something that you should be shouting about?
