Capt Nattaya Suphanpong from Thalang Police was called to investigate an incident where a man had sustained serious head injuries after falling from a scaffold tower when fixing a road light at Kan Hayha in Srisoonthorn.

It was reported that the man, 43-year-old Boonnate Boonsri, was not responding to any communication made with him.

Police arrived at Moo Baan Kan Hayha-Baan Lipon with Kusoldharm rescue workers to find a group of residents gathered around the unconscious man. After administering CPR, rescue workers immediately took Mr Boonsri to Thalang Hospital.

Capt Nattaya said that witnesses said that Mr Boonsri had climbed the scaffold tower to fix a broken light but got electrocuted and fell to the ground landing head first. He had been employed to fix all the street lights in the area.
