She was the 22nd person to die from the nightclub inferno, according to Ronnarong Kaewphet, a lawyer for a number of the victims, who posted the news on his Facebook page.

Mr Ronnarong said the woman was 30 years old and a mother of two children.

The woman had been treated at Chon Buri Hospital where she succumbed to serious burns yesterday afternoon, reports the Bangkok Post.

On Saturday, an engineer who suffered 95% burns died at Lerd Sin Hospital in Bangkok. He was the 21st fatality from the blaze.

Thai Residential

The fire started at the pub in Sattahip district of Chon Buri in the early hours of Aug 5, killing 13 people trapped inside as the blaze ripped through the venue.

The pub was operating without a proper permit, had a blocked exit and had undergone extensive modifications that involved the use of highly-inflammable soundproofing materials.

Somyos Panprasong, 55, the owner of the pub, has been charged with recklessness causing deaths and injuries, and opening and operating an entertainment venue without permission.

These poor people. This poor girl has been suffering terribly for over 3 weeks before finally losing the battle. Meanwhile, these crooked lawbreakers and their complicit corrupt partners in government and the RTP that condoned this legal activity continue enjoying their lives and going home to their loved ones like nothing happened. Disgusting lack of justice once again.

Is Thailand not having a professional specialized  burns hospital? How many more victims will die? All of them victim of a rain down of highly inflammable ceiling material on them is just a ( few?) minute.
It only can be called criminal that such place passed safety inspections or could avoid inspections by bribing Thai safety officials.
