Thai Rath reported that a 33 year old crane operator was electrocuted after his vehicle came into contact with power lines.

They said Nakorn Phalapree from Kalasin was “burnt to a cinder”.

He was found by Phra Samut Chedi, Samut Prakarn cops lying by the front right wheel of his crane.

A member of the public had already taken his friend Jirasak Kesa, 58, to hospital. He had burns to his leg after trying to save his workmate.

Witness Chairat Chalongdaeng, 40, said the crane operator was dismantling metal pieces from a disused factory in Soi Highland.

Due to not taking care of the electrical wires his crane hit them and sent the current into the cab.

Police are investigating and talking to those in charge of the operation. – Thai Rath
