PATHUM THANI, 26 October 2011 (NNT) – Four residents in Nonthaburi reportedly suffered toxic smoke inhalation after the embankment in Pathum Thani province broke open yesterday.
According to rescue volunteers from Pohtecktung Foundation, the water pierced through a leak on the embankment near Nonthaburi Bridge around the Suan Somdej junction in Pathum Thani province, causing a three-meter long crack on the embankment which allowed an influx of water onto the ground where a factory is located. Shortly after the spillover, an acrid smell billowed out of the factory, sickening four people who were later rushed to a nearby hospital.
The said area is home to 25 families, most of which have already been evacuated.
