Staff of Maharaj Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital confirmed the death of Thanakit “Nong Kongbin” Yodmanee, whose organs had been failing.

The toddler was taken to the hospital on Aug 11 after he was found unconscious in the back of the van at the Wat Srimaram childcare development centre in tambon Kathum of Phibun district. He had been forgotten and left locked in the van alone from 7:30am to around 1:30pm.

The boy was in a coma and was put on life support at the hospital.

Doctors tried in vain yesterday to save the boy’s life after his liver and kidneys stopped functioning. His parents later decided to have their son taken off life support. The hospital confirmed his death at 5:20pm.

Pol Maj Gen Sonthichai Arwattanakulthep, chief of the Nakhon Si Thammarat police, said police would press charges of negligence causing death against the van driver and a teacher who was in charge of looking after the children in the van.

@JohnC !  What an unbelievable stupid comment ! Neither was it the van from the parents nor did they forget him in a car. Read the last paragraph !

JohnC,you should read the story again before blaming the parents !

The parents don't deserve to have any children if this is the way they look after them. How do you forget your 2 yr old son for 6 hours??? Disturbing!
