Chiang Mai – Floating Body Found in the Moat Shocks Bystanders and Police… TWICE!

Via: City News – Chiang Mai

A woman was seen floating belly up in the moat on 23rd of April at 9 a.m. next to Chang Puak Gate where bystanders had gathered somewhat shocked by the sight of the woman’s body and the flip-flops she had left at the side of the moat.

When authorities arrived at the scene they could hardly get through the throng of people also exacerbated by a heavy traffic jam. The inquiry officials initially feared that it was a murder case, so they asked the Department of Forensic Medicine of Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, and officials at Forensic Science Regional Sub 32, to cooperate in the investigation while the witnesses were still present.

Police officers, a recue team (you would of thought they’d send a rescue team- guess not, huh?) and reporters who had been waiting for over an hour for physicians to arrive at the scene were shocked (shocked, I say!) when someone in the crowd pointed out the hand of the women was moving, which also caused panic and commotion in the crowd.

The rescue team then proceeded to jump into the moat and found the lady, who seemed to around 45 to 50 years old, was still alive!

She was sent to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital.

Police thought it was possible that the lady may have been drunk (no kidding?).

Anyone who recognises the lady can contact Maharah Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital.
