Boat capsizes, 2 girls missing
« on: March 06, 2012, 07:24:31 PM »
Two girl students are missing after a motorboat with five students and an operator on board capsized in the middle of the Chao Phraya River in front of a temple in Sam Khok district of Pathum Thani province on Tuesday.

Pol Lt-Col Sanoh Thaboon of Sam Khok police station said the incident happened in front of Wat Samakkhiyaram, where the river is about 300 metres wide, in tambon Khlong Wai at about noon.

Viroj Sukkasem, 17, a Mathayom 5 student of Sam Khok School, said he and four girl students from the same school were on their way to the Pathum Thani market buy stationery.

They took a boat operated by Amnat Nakadanont, 37, at the Wat Suan Muang boat landing, and headed for a landing in front of Wat Samakkhiyaram on the other side of the river.

In the middle of the river, the boat capsized after being hit by strong waves. Viroj said he and two girl students were plucked from the water by a villager who came to their rescue.

But two other girls went missing. They are Maliwan Tosanthia, a Mathayom 1 student, and Waraporn (surname not known), a Mathayom 5 student.

Pol Lt-Col Chukiat Imchaitham, deputy chief of Sam Khok police, said the boat operator was thought to have escaped.

"Missing" is a euphemism on this one, that river is unforgiving.

........said the boat operator was thought to have escaped.

You mean he fled the scene? There's a surprise!
