Pattaya, the 17th of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 12:00pm on Saturday, Captain Jamrat Thongjinda (Pattaya Police Deputy Superintendent) was notified of an accident at the Tudor Court Condominium project in Soi 2, Phratamnak Hill. A team of officers and members from the Sawang Boriboon Foundation were immediately dispatched to the incident to investigate and render assistance.

At the scene, a five-storey condominium construction project, officers discovered the severely injured body of a man, now known to be Mr. Prawit Khandee [42], crying out in pain amidst a pile of broken bricks and scattered steel framework. Initial examinations determined that Mr. Khandee had suffered a broken arm, leg and suspected broken ribs in the incident. He was subsequently transported to the Pattaya Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Investigations with a co-worker, Mr. Thongrat [50], revealed that Mr. Khandee had been working with a pack of some 200 bricks that was being supported by an overhanging steel platform on the fourth floor. Mr.Thongrat explained that his friend had fallen when the platform collapsed, landing amongst the pile of broken bricks and steel framework. “He is very lucky to be alive,” exclaimed Mr. Thongrat.

Officers are now in the process of investigations with the English project manager, known as Mr. Simon, and the contractor in an attempt to ascertain the reasons behind the collapse.
