The Huay Yai canal is a dry canal located between 20 rais of rice fields. Arriving officers walked along the canal for about 100 meters until they found the corpse of Mr. Prayuth Eam-sawat, age 33, a resident of Tambon Huay Yai.

Ms. Malee Eam-sawat, age 30, the victim’s younger sister, said she had been working at the Mimoza Pattaya, a tourism attraction opposite the Ambassador hotel, when she was informed by the neighbors that they found the corpse of her elder brother at the side of Huay Yai canal.

She said her elder brother sold coconuts in the market, and after finishing work, he would walk to visit his friend living at the corner of the rice field, and had to walk across the canal.

Pol. Capt. Saijai Khamjulla revealed that for the cause of the death, police assumed that Mr. Prayuth was walking across the canal to see his friend, who was not so far away on the opposite site of the canal.

But during his walking Mr. Prayuth slipped on the path, and had used his two hands to grab the electric fencing to break his fall, but received a fatal jolt. The fence had an electric current of 220 voltage to guard against buffaloes and cows from eating the rice.

Police will restrain the owner of the electric fence, Mrs. Samneang Khaokaew, age 40, to investigate and prosecute further according to the law.
