Man dies after falling from scaffolding at Lampang Wat

A man has died in a construction site accident at Wat Rong Thung in Lampang Province.

The victim, identified as Mr. Jade Dechboon, 63 from Moo 5, Pong Sansong, Muang Lampang was painting an archway at the front of the Wat before falling from 5.5 meters from the scaffolding he was standing on, hitting his head on impact.

While death is believed to have been an accident, Mr. Dechboon will undergo an autopsy, as is standard in Thailand before his body is released to his family for Buddhist funeral rites.
