Three-year old girl died of suffocation in a locked van

A three-year old kindergarten girl died of suffocation and heat in a locked van at a housing estate in Bang Pu district of Samut Prakan Wednesday.

Bang Pu police said that the victim was among a total of 13 children picked up from the housing estate to be sent to a kindergarten school. However, the airconditioner of the van failed and a substitute van was sent to replace it.

All the children except one were transferred to the substitute van by the driver and the attendant without realizing that one was left abandoned on the back seat. The old van was then parked in the housing estate.

The driver and the attendant went back to the kindergarten school to pick up the children for home. But only 12 of them showed up so they phoned the parents of the missing kid to enquire whether they had already picked her up and the answer was no.

So they rushed back to the parked van and found the lifeless kid lying in the back seat apparently died of suffocation and heat.

Both the driver and the attendant are facing charge of manslaughter.

It's too sad to hear of this happening again and again. Better not comment!


The pair have initially been charged with carelessness causing death.

She was the youngest of five children. Her mum after taking her to the van, went to open a grocery shop at a nearby market.

In May 2013, a three-year-old boy in Si Sa Ket died after being left by his teacher for seven hours in a converted pickup truck used as a kindergarten minivan.

The toddler's death came less than a month after two teachers at a Kindergarten School in Samut Prakan faced charges over the death of a three-year-old girl who was left in a closed, hot van for several hours outside her kindergarten

Police print stickers warning of kids left in vans

Two of the four types of warning stickers against leaving children in vehicles to be distributed on Monday.

The Metropolitan Police Bureau has produced stickers to warn parents and school van drivers to check for children locked in hot vehicles following the death of a three-year-old kindergarten girl in Samut Prakan on Wednesday.

The stickers will be distributed to private operators of school vans and to schools which provide transport for young students in Bangkok and nearby provinces on Monday when schools reopen.

The stickers are made into four different versions with two messages: “Don’t leave me in the car” and “Don’t forget your child in your car”. 

Acting MPB chief Pol Lt Gen Sanit Mahathaworn, who ordered the printing of the stickers, said the measure is part of joint efforts with the Ministry of Education to encourage more caution and prevent young children from being inadvertently left in school vehicles by drivers or teachers.

On Wednesday, Palimprapa “Nong Ing” Pajjaiyo died in a charted school van after the driver and his assistant forgot her when they stopped at a housing estate in Samut Prakan. She was in the van alone for seven hours.

Nong Ing’s cremation ceremony took place on Sunday at 5pm at Wat Khlong Kao in Muang Samut Prakan district with her family members and teachers in mourning. Local media reported that her grieving mother Thanatcha Pajjaiyo fainted when an undertaker opened Nong Ing’s coffin to let her see her daughter one last time.
