Siriwan ‘Mind’ Wongsuk, 17, of Sattahip district, succumbed to her injuries at Thammasat University Hospital in Pathum Thani province at 9:14pm, reports the Bangkok Post.

Her elder sister Sawaros Wongsuk, 27, said Siriwan had been transferred to the hospital two days after the inferno. Her younger sister had been on a ventilator and did not respond to treatment on Friday. Siriwan died peacefully on Friday night, said Ms Sawaros.

The teenager had gone to Mountain B with two other friends on Aug 5. One of her friends, Phromporn Phoolsawat, 18, died at the fire-gutted pub. Siriwan sustained serious injuries and her other friend, 18, managed to escape the fire, according to Ms Sawaros.

The family would bring Sriwan’s body for funeral rites at Wat Ransisunthorn in Sattahip.

And the death toll and grief just keep mounting, while the well connected owner is out plotting his escape from the Kingdom after filling up many pockets of the RTP. Maybe there are also numerous complicit public officials that are also paying the right people so they'll be overlooked, while  helping the RTP determine who will be the designated scapegoat to take the fall for this tragedy.

Not much reporting about the Vietnamese victim with 80% burns who was hit with a 600k plus bill by a well known ''hospital' chain before they got her to a more sensible place..
