After allegedly being trapped for four days, a person was finally freed from a drainage in Bangkok’s Ratchathewi district on Saturday.

An unnamed man, between the ages of 40 and 50, was discovered trapped in a drainage in Phetchaburi Soi 2 at 1.47pm, according to the Amarin radio center. To give support, it worked with the Poh Teck Foundation’s rescue team and the Phayathai fire place.

In the midst of falling rain, rescuers were able to reduce a rope and rescue the person.

Witnesses on the field reported hearing yells that the man had fallen about four weeks prior.

He needs medical attention at Petcharavej Hospital.

According to Pol Lt Col Chotpisit Narongsak, deputy chief of the Phayathai police depot, the man was discovered trapped in the drainage after a passing by his request for assistance.

After questioning, the gentleman was identified as Yosakorn Jannamsai, 44, from Chaiyaphum state.

Mr. Yosakorn claimed to have hidden himself in the hose to fend off a pursuing person. He has no criminal history and works as a security guard, said Pol Lt Col Chotpisit.

His speech and the presence of drugs are both in need of further investigation.

The tragedy came only a week after a 59- year- aged man died after falling into a 7- metre- strong manhole&nbsp, on a road divider in Lat Phrao district of Bangkok. The Metropolitan Electricity Authority ( MEA ) apologized for the death, claiming that due to the theft of iron manhole covers, it had been using temporary wooden covers in some locations.
