Why was this man carrying a knife ? many have concealed weapons as they can easily get involved with local altercations.As we know there appears to be no middle ground just craziness when some Thais lose their cool. This is not being unkind, its just what i have observed with some elements.Josephine if there is a God then i hope he is keeping score, you deserve a 10, and of course all your belongings returned with thanks !

I was there. The knife injuries was mainly on the man's belly on the left side. He had already lost a lot of blood when I came to the place. Had a first aid kit with me and gave CPR but it was too late. While I gave mouth to mouth someone stole my handbag. It's hard to have hope for humanity sometimes :(

Why would he be carrying a knife? What is so wrong about Thai culture to carry & use weapons?
