Fisherman dies from Electric Shock.

Fisherman dies from Electric Shock.


A tragic accident occurred at a small lake in Huoy Yai Municipality on Sunday Afternoon which resulted in the death of a local resident. Police Captain Pongsatorn from Huoy Yai Police Station was assigned to the case and inspected the body of Khun Nee aged 64. He had apparently electrocuted himself while he was fishing in the small lake. The victim was using electric cable which he placed in the water and then attached the wire to a battery which produced an electric charge. This is a popular form of fishing which allows for the capture of large amounts of fish in a short period of time. His body has been sent for a post mortem examination to confirm the cause of death.

I've seen similar news reports during floods, where locals are fishing by introducing a charge into the water by stupid means...rarely ends well. Every time I go up to Isaan I cringe at how things are grounded and avoid puddles near buildings. A tourist was electrocuted a few months ago in Bangkok walking in a section of a flooded street after a flood as well.

Not sure if the Darwin awards cover thailand, but if they do he's got to be in with a shot.


Thais seem to have no fear of electricity.

Everything from powercables to neon signs is cabled in the most half-arsed and dangerous way i've ever seen.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
