An American tourist has been praised for stopping to help at the scene of an accident in Chiang Mai on Sunday.
Twenty six year old Ray Aber (name transliterated) had only arrived in Chiang Mai a short time earlier and was travelling in a taxi from the airport to Pai.
It was during the journey Ray came across the scene of the accident in Mae Taeng, where summer storms had uprooted a tree causing it to fall on a vehicle, injuring three passengers inside and leaving one of the passengers trapped inside the vehicle.
Sanook reported that Ray, an engineer, told the taxi he was travelling in to stop at the scene while he went an assisted in freeing the person who was trapped in the vehicle. The report said Ray and other rescuers worked for more than an hour in torrential rain to free the person.
Sanook also reported a 56 year woman died in the accident.
