Mr.Wittaya Samnao, who is disabled because he has artificial arms. He makes a living as a street seller on Pattaya beach. He told police that while he was walking on the road where it was under construction near the old pier there were lots of cars which he tried to avoid and stepped on a sheet of wood which was laid on top of a drain. The sheet was very thin and after he stepped on it the sheet gave way under him causing him to fall into the drain that was 4-5 metres deep. His artificial arms broke off and he couldn’t get out. He then cried for help and a passerby and some motor bike riders helped him out.

For the accident he blamed the contractor who had been very careless and if there was water in the drain he might have been killed because he didn’t have any arms. He also added that he wanted the contractor to fix this problem immediately before anybody else comes to harm.
