Boat passenger falls into Saen Saep canal, drowns


A passenger drowned after falling from a commuter boat along Khlong Saen Saep while jumping to a pier in Watthana district on Thursday morning.
The man tried to jump from the commuter ferry onto Nanachat pier, behind Saint Dominic School at Soi Sukhumvit 15 around 6.10am, said Chawalit Methayaprapart, manager of Family Transport Co, which operates boats on the canal.
The passenger jumped to the pier before the boat was properly moored, he said.
The driver stopped the boat and waited near the pier for 10 minutes, but there was no sign of the missing man emerging from the canal, Mr Chawalit said.
Divers found his body about 10.30am, 100 metres from the pier where he fell, according to the Amarin radio centre, run by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration.
The dead man was identified as Theerapong Silalit, 50. He had sustained injuries to his neck and shoulder during the fall.
