A monk and a dog were attacked by hornets while inside the temple. The incident took place at 23.00 on 1 August 2020 when a swarm of hornets attacked the monk while he was feeding a temple dog. The local rescue team in Lampang Province went to rescue the monk and the dog at the Mother Suchada Temple in Pichai Sub-district, Lampang. The team received a notification stating that the temple’s abbot had been stung multiple times by a swarm of hornets. The monk was extremely nauseous and his heart was racing.
The team arrived at the temple and found the monk Ekkachai 65 years old, the abbot behind the building. The monk had been stung on the face, lips, and all over his body, he had been stung at least 30 times. The victim revealed that he was feeding dinner to the temple dogs, this is his regular routine as the dogs are kept as pets by the temple. While he was feeding a dog some food, a swarm of hornets attacked the monk with no clear reason. The hornets are Vespa affinis, a common type of hornets found in Asia often referred to as the lesser banded hornet. This type of hornets eat carbohydrates including fruits and high protein food such as bees.
The dog was also attacked in the incident, there is no clear information to whether the dog is safe. The abbot stated that the hornets have been making a nest in the temple for about 2 months now. The nest seems to grow bigger every day and he hopes that someone with knowledge on hornets can come help relocate the nest with fear of the incident repeating itself. Officials from the rescue team stated that the monk showed symptoms of tachycardia. He received first aid and was quickly delivered to the Lampang Hospital.

There has been a Jet Ski explosion in Bang Saen Beach, Chonburi Province. The Jet Ski rider tried at least 10 times to start the Jet Ski, then when the owner offered to turn it on the Jet Ski exploded after only 2 tries. The Local rescue team in Chonburi received a notification on 31 July 2020 about a Jet Ski explosion with one injured person.

The rescue team and the firefighters arrived to find a Blue/Black Jet Ski on fire. Officials were able to put out the fire but the whole Jet Ski was burned down.

The rescue team administered first aid to make sure that the victim was safe before delivering the man to the Burapha University Hospital.
Jakkrit Duangthip 42 years old the rider stated that he always uses this specific Jet Ski. He came to the beach as usual but the Jet Ski wouldn’t start-up. After trying for at least 10 times Jakkrit then told Suthep who is the owner of the Jet Ski about the issue. Suthep walked to the Jet Ski to help, on his first try it wouldn’t start-up but then on the second try, the Jet Ski exploded. Jakkrit believes that he was saved by a Buddhist amulet that he keeps with him at all times. The amulet was created by a highly respected monk in Thailand from Ayutthaya Province. Many people who work on the water and rescue team members also believe in the power of the same monk.

A group of customers was shocked to find a needle in pork while they were dining at a BBQ buffet. The customers informed the restaurant of their discovery and were not offered a solution, furthermore when they left the BBQ they were called back to pay a fine for leaving leftover food. The incident took place on 31 July 2020 told by a customer in the group on her personal Facebook. She revealed that the needle actually looked like a large hypodermic needle used by a doctor. The group lost their appetite to eat anymore pork after finding the needle, but instead, the restaurant fined them for leaving food behind.
The customer who chose the piece of pork is perhaps a very lucky person, what damage would the needle do if it was not noticed and swallowed? The owner of the buffet was notified and informed the group that he would tell the pork delivery man about the needle instead of an apology or an offer to refund the meal. As any other person would feel, the group felt like they didn’t want to eat at the business anymore and decided to leave while some leftovers were still on the table. Before walking out of the restaurant, the owner sent over an employee to collect a fine for leaving behind the food.
The customer posted online “A surprise first time eating here. I went to eat at a BBQ pork buffet near my university. Everything was normal, I picked some food and raw pork to cook on the grill. As we were cooking the pork my friend called me while holding a piece of pork.
Friend: Look, good thing I didn’t eat it.
FB User: What is that, metal?
Everyone sitting at the table started feeling uncomfortable. At first, we were just going to ignore it, but it looked like a large hypodermic needle. I stood up and walked to the counter taking the pork with me.
FB User: Miss, there is a needle in my pork.
Employee: Probably a hypodermic needle.
The employee pulled the needle out then called the owner.
Employee: A customer found a needle in the pork.
She then told me to wait at my table. The owner came to the table.
Owner: You found a needle? Oh sorry, good thing you told me. I’ll tell the man who delivers the pork.
Friend: It is very long, found in the pork. My friend almost ate it”.
The group lost their appetite and started to leave the restaurant when an employee ran to the group and asked them to pay a fine of 80 THB.

She worked as a tutor and an online flower seller in Bangkok for over 10 years. This was until 2 months ago when her life took a turn.

Porn had no money and had to leave all her other belongings behind in the big city, Porn used all she had to move back with all her cats. Pim reveals that her daughter loves the cats and couldn’t leave them behind. When she arrived at the single-story home Porn locked herself inside with all the cats, closing all the windows and doors. There are also 6 small dogs living outside the house. Pim has been sleeping outside ever since because she cannot stand the smell from the cat box with no air circulation inside the home. Pim is worried and decides to seek help because the cats are starving to death, Porn does not have money to buy any cat food. Pim is not allowed to enter the home, and the two have always had personal conflicts.

A drug warehouse has been discovered in Khon Kaen Province. The warehouse is located right in the main city of Khon Kaen, many types of drugs seized worth tens of millions of THB. Somsak Jangtrakun the Khon Kaen Governor, Police Major General Somchai Numtoh, Police Major General Puttipong Musijul, and other related officials reported the arrest of Jetsadaporn 35 years snd Jurairat 34 years old, both from Maha Sarakham Province. Officials also reported that evidence includes 523,272 Yaba pills, 3,036 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 5 kilograms of dried marijuana, a gun, and assets seized worth 1,150,726 THB.
Jetsadaporn stated that the drugs have been bought from a man named Sin in Laos. The drugs were smuggled into Thailand from Laos through Mukdahan Province. The drug group planned several meeting points in Khon Kaen Province to exchange the goods. All the product was then moved to an apartment building. There were 2 rooms rented by the suspects, a room was used as a drug warehouse while the other room was used as a bedroom. The bedroom often functions as a drug testing room, where the suspects offer full service to customers wanting to test out the drugs on the spot.
The Khon Kaen Governor stated that the suspects have admitted to being a part of an international drug group. They are paid 1 THB per Yaba pill sold and if all pills in the lot are sold out within the given time then they would receive an extra payment of 500,000 THB. Earnings from the sale of crystal meth and other drugs are separate from Yaba sales. History shows that the suspects will receive Yaba pills in bulk. The rooms have been rented for 4 months and there have been 5 Yaba lots delivered and sold. There are 200,000-400,000 Yaba pills per lot and 2-3 kilograms of crystal meth per lot. Officials received information about the suspect from smaller drug sellers and users.

- Man calls 1669 emergency line on ghost claims.
A man scared of ghosts called the 1669 emergency line on 24 July 2020 to tell haunting stories to officials.
A man scared of ghosts called the 1669 emergency line on 24 July 2020 to tell haunting stories to officials. The story was shared by Chai Wan Police Facebook Page to warn others to not do what the man did as it can get them in legal trouble. A man had called the local rescue team stating that someone had committed suicide and he didn’t want to be left alone until morning. It is normal to often fear the unseen, but it is definitely not normal when the problem is taken to officials who are responsible for many serious matters such as taking care of crimes in the area and medical care of those who are unwell or injured in accidents.
The post stated “There were 2 calls made. Alone at night and scared of ghosts made the man call 1669 claiming that someone had committed suicide in Ban Na Pu and he wanted someone to stay with him until morning came. The police were contacted so they called the man in for a talk. A warning was given to never repeat the actions because it can cause issues for actual medical emergencies. Each case uses a part of the medical budget as medical personnel along with equipment has to be prepared. Officials had a long talk with the man before he was allowed to go home. #There is a free resort at the police station”. The hashtag refers that anyone could come to stay a night at the police station if they are in fear.
The man insisted that there was truly someone haunting him and he simply called the emergency medical line to search for a friend during the night. If this happens to you and you are afraid then go to a friend or the police, whether it’s ghosts, other unseen activity, or fear that someone might have intentions to hurt you then seek help from someone you can trust. Police and the local rescue teams have a lot of cases every day and night on real people who are facing true danger or need medical care. Calling for such reasons not only interrupts their work but takes away money from the emergency funds often fueled by taxes and donations from good citizens.
