A Thai mum saw that her son was about to be shot by an assassin so she jumped in front to protect him.
Police in Surat Thani found the son she had saved and her husband crying uncontrollably as they cradled the woman who had sacrificed her life, reports Daily News.
The incident happened at a house in Bang Ngorn sub-district of Phun Phin late on Monday night. Pranee Mapha, 58 and her husband Manee Bunrot were with their son Somkiat Bunrot beside the house.
A man arrived in a Toyota pick-up. Before long he had pulled out a shotgun and when Pranee saw that it was aimed at her son she jumped in front to give him protection, said police.
But she was shot and died at the scene.
The shooter fled the scene and now the hunt is on while police are interviewing the son to find out why someone wanted to kill him.
