-A drunken American man drove his car into a 6 meter deep drainage canal, but managed to swim away with the help of an onlooker who pulled him ashore.
The incident occurred at 10:15 pm, 2nd January, 2014, along a stretch of dirt road that forms a bank for a drainage canal in Somrong Teo Village, Krung Tnong Commune, Posenchay District.
-A witness stated he had seen the American speeding along the road in a dark green and silver Mitsubishi Pajero, heading west to east. When he arrived at the point of the road adjacent to the canal where it turns left, he failed to negotiate the turn, causing the car to plunge into canal, where it sank. But the driver managed to press open the car window, crawl out of the car, and swim away with a bottle of alcohol in his possession before he was helped ashore.
