A thorough autopsy of the man’s body at Map Ta Phut Tank Terminal ( MTT ) in Rayong province to determine the cause of his death and whether it was caused by falling or from other causes was ordered by the police to be performed.

Nopporn Ruenma, a 33-year-old MTT individual, exploded on May 9 from the bottom of a sizable chemical tank, which he was working at the company.

A local reservoir, which contained a C9 hydrocarbon compound, a solvent used to make cheap pellets, was the site of the fire, which emitted enormous black smoke into the air.

Eight hours after, the fire was contained.

Nopporn was pronounced deceased. Three firefighters and two employees also suffered injuries in the affair. SCG Chemicals Plc, the chemical division of Siam Cement Group (SCG), was shut down as a result of the event.

Under the supervision of the National Health Security Office ( NHSO ) and a faculty of allied health sciences medical team, residents were moved to a nearby community.

Nopporn’s figure was being transferred to his home in Chiang Rai, upon the plea of his family, for a catholic rite on Friday. Authorities in Rayong requested that the brain be returned to the Police General Hospital for a post-mortem after being stopped.

Pol Maj Gen Pongphan Wongmaneethet, commander of Rayong Provincial Police, said the investigation may be carried out completely by forensic professionals.

If the system is now cremated, the confirmation method would be hard, Pol Maj Gen Pongphan said.

However, the medical staff from the Industrial Estate Authority, National Health Security Office and Chulalongkorn University’s University of Allied Health Sciences found some people affected by the tragedy had developed signs, such as discomfort, vomiting and dark eyes. Some 224 people have undergone wellness monitoring.

Among them, 55 people have been prescribed medicine, 78 people showed symptoms but required no medical care and 86 showed no signs of ailments.
