On 6 October 2007, at 2 AM, Banglamung Police Sub. Lieutenant Phongsathorn Bai-lad, was notified that a man had lay down on railroad tracks and was fatally crushed. The incident took place on the railway tracks on Soi Khao-ta-lo. Police officers and Sawang Boriboon Rescue rushed to the scene to investigate.
At the scene, police found a large crowd gathered around observing the body parts of the anonymous man, scattered around the tracks. The scene was horrific and indescribable.
It was necessary for Sawang Boriboon Rescue workers to collect the body parts from along the railway tracks for a length of ten meters and then to reassemble them. They concluded that the man was about forty to forty-five years of age. No identification was found. Officials retrieved a patterned, short sleeve shirt and sports shorts nearby, presumably those of the dead man. Initially, officials questioned people in the vicinity; including Mr. Chaiwat Neamnoi (16), who is a volunteer from Sawang Boriboon Rescue.

Mr. Chaiwat said that, earlier the same evening, he observed the man walking along Sukhumvit Road, in front of Tesco Lotus, in South Pattaya. The man, who appeared drunk, attempted to run in front of a car, but only sustained minor injuries. The man was disoriented and did not seem to know his name. He said he worked at Rueo Mai Restaurant, but had problems and didn’t go to work. He tried to escape, but was chased by over ten men.

Mr. Chaiwat brought the man back to the restaurant that he said he used to work for, and then didn’t give the matter any more thought; until he learned about a man who was run over by a train. He went to take a look and was quite sure it was the same man.

Officials assume that the anonymous man was homeless and deranged or under the influence of drugs causing him to imagine that someone was trying to kill him. He tried to jump in front of a car, but was rescued. Finally, he attempted suicide again by taking off his clothes and lying down on the railway tracks. This time he was successful. Officials have sent his body to Banglamung Hospital and will try to find relatives to take his body for religious ceremony.

LATEST REPORT:

On 8 October, at 11.30, Mr. Den Saen-Jaruen, (46), living at house No. 2, Moo 5, Theparat, Baanbpo, Chacherngsao province, notified to Pol.Sub.Lt. Phongsathorn Bai-lard, that the man who had lay down on railroad tracks and was fatally crushed, was his older brother.

Mr. Den said that his brother’s name was Mr. Arnon Saen-Jaruen (47), who worked as a dishwasher at Ruea Mai restaurant, located on Sukhumvit road, adjacent to Tesco Lotus, South Pattaya. After he heard the news, he immediately rang the restaurant and found out that his brother was suspended from the job for five days due to his drinking habit that had made him suffered from severe dysentery and could not work. Mr. Arnon had disappeared from his work until the night that he was crushed by the train.

Presumably, Mr. Anon was too stressful that he was suspended from the job and tried to stop drinking. Mr. Arnon, probably, was suffering from severe dysentery again and decided to commit suicide.

Mr. Den had shown the identity of Mr. Arnon to police and informed owner of Ruea Mai restaurant to give report to police for record. Therefore, Mr. Den had asked to bring the body of Mr. Arnon to do the religious ceremony.
