After experiencing asthma, the victim’s four companions searched for him in the middle of the forest. Unfortunately, the victim was found in a state of difficulty breathing before passing away. “So his friends thought he was lost. But it turns out he had difficulty breathing.

After a few minutes, the victim couldn’t be saved,” said Malkam. Malkam mentioned that the victim died on the climbing route near the path to the “Sampurarung” Waterfall in Santong Village Forest.
