Man saved after three hour ordeal clinging to rocks in Mae Ping river

A worker trapped in a weir clung to rocks for three hours before he was successfully rescued.

The drama happened in the Mae Ping river at a dam area where some workers were dredging in Muang district of Kamphaengphet.

Five workers ended up in the water after a long-tail boat capsized.

Four managed to swim to safety and were picked up by a fishing boat and taken to hospital.

But one man – named later as Rungroj, 49, from Sukhothai – was swept away into the weir and saved himself by grabbing hold of rocks.

It was several hours before foundation staff managed to get him free.

The boat was also later recovered.
