On Novemmber 8, at 11.00 am., Pol. Lt. Col. Chareon Withitkorakoon, Sattahip, investigator, Chonburi province, was informed by Mr. Sangwhan Wongwatthana, 43, staff supervisor of Sattahip Ice Manufacturer Partnership Ltd., located at 73/2 Moo 5, Na Jomtien sub-district, Sattahip district, about the death of Mr. Thaksin Naebthonglang. The victim, 33, was a ice maker staff, whose chest was clamped by a massive 600-kg ice machine crucible. The victim was transported to Queen Sirikit Hospital, Naval Medical Department. However, Mr. Sangwhan was notified by an ER doctor that Mr. Thaksin had passed away.
Afterwards, Police Colonel Suphathir Boonkhrong, Superintendent of Sattahip Police Station and the inspector on duty, hurried to the crime scene. Mr. Sangwhan told them that, earlier that day, Mr. Thaksin was stationed at the ice machine in order to take the ice out of the crucible, and to fill up the crucible with fresh water. Mr. Thaksin was climbing to top of the crucible stand to hook both rings on the crucible with the stand, and fell into the crucible which was full of fresh water, and at the same time, the crucible flipped to the original position, clamping his chest and stomach, causing him to pass out. Other workers tried to get him out of it and take him to the hospital. However, he could not take the pain any longer and died soon after.

Police Colonel Suphathir Boonkhrong said, after inspecting the crime scene, the cause of death was determined not to be the fault of the machine, but was an accident because Mr. Thaksin fell into the 600-kg crucible and it clamped his chest and stomach. An x-ray on him had been processed and internal bruises were found.

The wife of the victim, Mrs. Prachak Naebthonglang, 32, heard the whole story and did not want to press charges against the factory because it was an accident that happened while he was on duty.
