    A woman burned garbage after a big cleaning day but then the fire spread and ended up burning the house down. Villagers were shocked when the fire started spreading, they were afraid other homes would be burned down too. The woman decided that it was time to clean her home and get rid of any collected trash. The Khon Kaen Police Station were notified of a fire at 17.30 on 13 January 2020 at a home in Thepparak Village. The village is located in the main city of Khon Kaen Province. Officials notified the local fire station and rescue team before heading to the location.

    They arrived to find a burned down single-story wooden house. More fire trucks were called in as the fire risked entering the neighbors home. There were heavy winds that made it even harder to put the fire out. After 30 minutes they finally were able to control the flames. The homeowner, a 49-year-old woman, stated she wasn’t home when the fire started. Her 27-year-old granddaughter was home alone. The granddaughter explained she was cleaning the home and gathered the garbage in a pile right in front of the house.

     

    She started burning the garbage before returning inside. There were heavy winds that blew the fire into the house. Once the fire started it spread out fast and there was nothing she could do. Officials collected evidence and interviewed all witnesses in the village. The local authorities are finding ways to help the family recover from the fire. This is a big lesson for the granddaughter to never burn garbage again, it wasn’t the right decision to start a fire right in front of a wooden house. Burning garbage is also bad for the environment and your health. Exposure to toxic air pollutants not only affects the person who burned the trash but also locals in the area.

    The post New drug mix of Ketamine, Heroin, and Ecstasy. appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    A new drug has been gaining popularity in Thailand. The nickname for the drug in Thai is “Milk Powder”. The drug looks like formula milk and the dealers usually mix in Ketamine, Heroin, and Ecstasy. Police Major General Thanit Jirananthawat from the Police Hospital reported samples of the drug were collected from the Wat Phraya Krai Police Station. There have been 2 versions of the drug found with different substances. The formula depends on what the drug gangs mix to create each lot depending on customer demands and the effects desired. Overdosing on the drug is easy.

    The first formula consists of Ketamine and Diazepam (Valium). Diazepam is in the benzodiazepine family and provides a calming effect. The second formula was found with Ketamine, Heroin, and Ecstasy. Both formulas did not have crystal meth or powdered milk as advertised in the name. Officials believe that the samples each came from different sources. The reason that overdose is so easy when using this new drug mix is due to the combination of highly addictive and powerful substances. Ketamine is a general anesthetic that can make you feel detached from the world and relaxed. It can also create hallucinations and reduce the feeling of pain. Mixing Ketamine and Ecstasy can put a lot of pressure on your heart. Diazepam is mixed in to help make the user not notice the side effects of each drug.

     

    Officials reveal the combination of different drugs, each individually very dangerous substances, is extremely dangerous. The users will not realize signs their body is telling them and eventually the body will go into shock. The doctor stated this is not the first time Thai Police have found “cocktail drugs”. The Milk Powder drug has been tied to 9 deaths in recent days. Ekkapop Luengprasit from the Sai Mai District Office stated “It is spreading all over Bangkok because it is cheap. When a user takes this drug they start acting out for 3-4 days straight. This only applies if you are healthy. Dozens have fainted right after taking the drug and ended up in the hospital”.

    A woman has been attacked by an unknown auntie at Udom Suk BTS Station. The victim revealed no one attempted to help her and the auntie disappeared on a bus after the attack. Facebook User Chanarnun Hulanond shared her story at 10.00 on 10 January 2020. The victim was physically attacked by an auntie estimated to be 40-50 year old near a bus stop by the station. Chanarnun stated the auntie walked towards her before shouting at her. She was scared and started to run away. The auntie kept on following her and pulled her hair.

    Chanarnun fell to the ground and tried to stand back up. When she finally did the victim quickly jumped into a taxi that was parked by the road. She stated in the post “I feel really bad because there were a lot of people standing there. All of them made space for the woman when she started attacking me. They all just walked away and made it easier for her to hurt me. No one even tried telling her to stop. The taxi driver told me he saw what happened, but he just assumed we knew each other and it was a private incident. The point is, even if we knew each other, it’s considered ok to hurt others?”

     

    Chanarnun has injuries on her hands and knees. The auntie also stepped on her glasses and phone, breaking both items. She asks netizens to send in any videos or pictures of the incident. A report has been filed at the Bangna Police station. Security footage from the nearby convenience store is extremely blurry and the auntie was wearing a mask and a hat. After attacking the victim she quickly jumped on a shuttle bus and disappeared. Chanarnun further states “I want to know who she is, so she doesn’t harm anyone else. If she is crazy then she should receive help. Please help share this post, thank you”.
