SATTAHIP: -- A nine year old boy who was unconscious on the bottom of a Sattahip housing estate pool was saved after a 14 year old boy dived in to help.

 

Father Jirayu Sophonkhanathorn said he had taken his nine year old son Sakphat to practice swimming at the pool. The boy was wearing a snorkel and was in a shallow area but moments later the father saw him under the water and cried out for help.

 

Fourteen year old Chanachai Wannaro, a M2 student at Ban Sattahip school, was jogging nearby and hearing the cries for help rushed over, dived in and fished out the boy.

 

He was unconscious but still alive. Medics from Sawang Rojnatham foundation arrived and got him to hospital in time.

 

Latest reports from Somdej Pranangjao Sirikit hospital were that the boy was now out of danger.

It's about time housing estate pools had a bloody lifeguard. Well done to Chanachai though. I am assuming the father probably couldn't swim either, or he would have probably jumped in himself.

Well done young man, just shows not all young Thai lads are useless.

One thing that puzzles me is, why did the boys father shout for help and not jump in a help his own son.

No life guard but there's a seat for him. :saai:

Absolutely they should raise the maintenance fees to cover this for pools that get used once per day. During the day isn't this mom's job. Sit and watch while children play? It used to be?
