Garbage Collector Finds Bodies of Infants in Bangkok

In a distressing incident in Bangkok’s Phaya Thai District, a garbage collector discovered the bodies of two male infants in his truck early this morning. The discovery was made at the entrance of Soi Phahonyothin 13 in Samsen Nai Subdistrict.

Pol. Lt. Col. Suphat Hemchinda from Bang Sue Police Station received the report and promptly arrived at the scene with a forensic team, a doctor from the Police General Hospital, and volunteers from Ruamkatanyu Foundation.

Upon inspection, authorities confirmed that the infants, estimated to be 7-8 months gestational age, were still attached to their placentas and umbilical cords. This suggests that the babies were likely stillborn or died shortly after birth. Initial assessments indicated that the infants had been deceased for approximately 10 hours before being discovered.

The discovery was made by 49-year-old Mr. Saran Somsri, a garbage collector. Mr. Somsri explained that he was performing his routine collection duties within Soi Phahonyothin 13 when he noticed the body of the first infant sliding out among the garbage. The second body, wrapped in a plastic bag, was found stuck to the truck’s garbage compactor. Shocked by the find, Mr. Somsri immediately alerted his colleagues, who then contacted the local police.

Pol. Col. Phuwanon Unphothi, leading the forensic investigation, stated that the initial efforts would focus on reviewing CCTV footage from the surrounding areas to identify the individual responsible for discarding the infants.

The bodies have been transferred to the Police General Hospital for further examination to uncover more details about the circumstances of their deaths and any potential identifying information.

Authorities have launched an intensive investigation to trace the origins of the infants and identify the person who abandoned them. Legal proceedings will follow once more information is available.

Numerous officials and community members, including volunteers from the Ruamkatanyu Foundation, were present at the scene to assist with the investigation and provide support.
