The province’s 4th Mini- and Half-Marathon was held at the Bang Rachan Memorial Park in Bang Rachan district this morning.

Dr Atsadang collapsed during the run and lost consciousness, media reported, citing a press release from the provincial public health office.

Doctors provided him with first-aid treatment on the spot before rushing him to the Khai Bang Rachan Hospital at 6am. There, doctors tried to save his life by performing CPR on him for one hour and fifteen minutes and used a defibrillator on him five times, but he did not respond.
