Pol. Lt. Col. Phraisilp Kaewseekhao, Klong Leuk police station, Sakaew province was notified by Pol. Col. Subin Boonlek, Superintendent, Klong Leuk police station of a “leaking” ATM machine at the popular border market.

At the accident scene the police found the body of a Cambodian boy age 7 beside the ATM machine. The boy had died on the spot due a massive electric shock.

Upon investigation, the electric officer said that this happened because of improper installation of the earthing equipment and electricity lines.
