Hundreds of revelers had a lucky escape last night when a pontoon sank during the Loy Krathong celebration.

pontoon-sinks-thailandMany people had come to celebrate the festival at Wat Saladaeng in the Pak Priaw sub-district of the central Thai town.

The pontoon was thought to be severely overloaded. It started to lean and everyone on it managed to make good their escape before it collapsed into the river.

The temple had not organized the event. It was an impromptu gathering of the local people.

Saraburi police were quickly on the scene to cordon off the area.

Experts have been called in to investigate why the pontoon collapsed.

No one was injured.
