The woman, 30 years old, is recovering at Vachira Phuket Hospital, Capt Jarat Lempan of the Chalong Police told The Phuket News.

“She is in good physical health, but she is depressed,” he said.

Doctors are making sure her mental and emotional well-being are being looked after, he added.

Police tracked down the woman after the foetus, of an unborn female, was found at about 6am yesterday (Jan 15).

Local resident Jaruwan Changlek found the foetus, wrapped in cloth and placed inside a black shoulder bag that was inside a pink plastic bag. The pink bag had been left near the front of her house off Soi Sammakee in Rawai’s Saiyuan area.

Ms Jaruwan informed Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos, who in turn informed Chalong Police.


Officers arrived and inspected the scene, and rescue workers took the foetus to Chalong Hospital for further examination, Capt Jarat said.

The woman explained that it was an unplanned pregnancy. After she became pregnant her boyfriend rejected her and his family shunned her, Capt Jarat explained.

Depressed and no longer wanting to give birth, she took medication to terminate the pregnancy, he added.

The woman also explained that the father of the unborn child is one of Ms Jaruwan’s sons, Capt Jarat explained.

“We have yet to decide whether any charges will be pressed against the mother,” he said.

Jabba Jor... k didn't make any "horrible" comments about the girl.... sgain you are grandstanding, making fake comments.

I find it horrible for a emotionally depressed woman to read that the Police still think about charges against the mother, and leave the 'man', the 'father' out of it.
As the foetus is examined in Chalong hospital, I am sure a DNA was taken, and can prove who is the father. No laws in Thailand regarding actions of such 'men'?

And Jor12, my first comment was not about the emotional depressed woman. It was about the 'father', a 'man'.

Kurt | 19 January 2020 - 11:34:31

Jor12, direct your comment on the father, the 'man' who horribly not took his responsibility. A father is a parent, or do you see that different? But now we talk about obligations/responsibilities. That seems to go to far for you?

Jor12 | 19 January 2020 - 11:02:31

k...so what charges would you propose against the father? Keep your horrible comments about an emotionally depressed woman to yourself.

Make abortion legal, cheap, private  and available within a 30 minute  lunch hour.

"When it is a rabbit..." OMG,wondering where you always get those quotes from. Self invented ?And :"They are so easy here,just walk away" Only here ? And no word about killing an eight month old foetus ,Mr.woman whisperer ?   

Kurt | 16 January 2020 - 16:14:21

How about charges against the boyfriend? Was he a long time boyfriend, not take his part of responsibility to prevent pregnancy?  They are so easy here, just walk away. Leave a woman alone. Very disgusting.  A very depressing and sad story. I hate that men mentality of: "when it is a rabbit we eat it together, if it is a baby you keep it".
