I remember years ago a Qantas B744 skidding off the end of the runway at DMK. It had aquaplaned during a heavy storm. Looks like this one tried to turn off the runway and failed to make the turn. Could have been going too fast and failed on tyre grip. Not the first Thai a/c to go off at BKK due to rain. Can't recall other airlines doing this  Interesting to note that there were only had 97 passengers on a B747.
