Girl, 5, dies in locked car left in sun for hours

A five-year-old girl died of suffocation in a car on Monday after being left in the locked vehicle for hours at her school in Khon Kaen.

A teacher picked up K from her home in the morning to take her to school because the kindergarten's bus was out of order.

However, she forgot the child was in the car when she arrived at the school and locked her car. She only remembered the child was still in the vehicle when she returned to her car after classes finished at 4.30pm.

A post mortem by the district hospital found that the girl died of suffocation as the car was left in sunlight throughout the day with all the windows closed.

The female teacher, whose name was withheld, teaches at Ban Cham Phuthong Kindergarten in Moo 1 village in Tambon Huay Muang in Phupha Man district.

The district chief, Phayung Lekdee, said the teacher picked up the girl from her home but somehow forgot her when she reached the school.

The teacher was in shock, the district chief added.

Most shocking is, that nobody at all seems to have missed the girl, like she was not an individual belonging to a community, not part of a group. Of course the teacher alone who forgot her in the car will get all the blame.

Since this has happened now eight times since 2012, the old fashion school register might just do the trick, call the names out, no reply, where are they. i hope you have gone to a better world. R.I.P.

Khon Kaen rallies around family of girl who died in locked pickup



Khon Kaen Governor Somsak Jangtrakul has offered aid and grief counselling to the family of five-year-old Kabinta “Nong Yam” Kehphuang, who died on Monday after being inadvertently left inside a locked pickup truck in sweltering heat for eight hours.

Somsak said the Tambon Huai Moung Administrative Organisation, which supervises the school in Phupha Man district that Kabinta attended and outside of which she died, had offered to sponsor four days of funeral rites and the cremation.

Representatives of the Khon Kaen Social Development and Human Security Office visited the family and gave them Bt2,000 in initial assistance.

More financial aid is forthcoming, including Bt20,000 from the Department of Older Persons, since Kabinta lived with her 70-year-old grandmother, Phetch Noikaew.

The district office has also appealed for public donations for the family.

The girl’s death – the eighth such fatality since 2012 – prompted her teacher, Phichitra Sudtana, 32, to seek treatment for shock at Khon Kaen Rajanagarindra Psychiatric Hospital.

Phichitra was charged with recklessness resulting in another person’s death and released on bail. Her failure to realise that Kabinta had been left in the pickup truck is being blamed in part on school understaffing.

Governor Somsak ordered administrative organisations in 26 districts to ensure there were more than 1,000 teachers or staff members at their 396 kindergartens, and that they were checking more frequently on the 19,000 pupils registered.

The order extends to some 1,000 schools elsewhere in the province.

Somsak said school directors would soon be assembled to discuss further measures, possibly including the introduction of bar-coded student ID cards that would track their arrival at and departure from school and notice any missing pupils.
