PATTAYA – November 27, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 9:30 p.m., a report was received of a man who got injured when fireworks exploded on his body. The incident occurred on Soi Mabyailia 28, in front of the village chief Kui market, Moo 7, Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung,

The victim was identified as Mr. Leurn Wichaiwong, age 40, a construction worker. Rescuers arriving at the scene found him lying on the ground. He was still very drunk, and crying to ask for assistance.

Mr. Leurn’s right hand was grasping his heavily-bleeding left hand, which had four fingers nearly torn off by the exploding fireworks. The rescue officer performed first aid and then hurried to send him to be cured at Banglamung hospital.

Mr. Leurn told rescuers that he had walked out from the construction camp holding a “ball” firecracker, slightly larger than a big grape. The fuse on top of the firecracker was about 3 cm long.

Mr. Leurn walked until arriving at the village chief Kui market, and he noticed that no one else was around. So he lit the fuse of the ball firecracker to tease his friend walking behind him. But Mr. Leurn didn’t throw away the firecracker in time, so it exploded in his hand.
