Two year old boy in lucky escape as old tree comes crashing down on Korat street

CCTV footage from Nakorn Ratchasima showed an old palm tree come crashing to the ground as a group of children played on a concrete road.

Adults in the area hear the cracking of the tree and children run for cover but two year old Phiangfa is bewildered and rooted to the spot.

The tree avoids hitting him by a matter of centimeters. And his life may well have been saved by the fact that the tree’s path was inhibited by the bonnet of a pick-up truck.

Mother Jenjira, 27, told Sanook she was watching the children play in Bua Yai district on Saturday evening. She heard the sound of the tree but was unable to reach her son.

Residents said that several trees were in a dangerous state for years but nothing was done.

Now eight trees in the area have been cut down.

The tree that nearly killed the child was infested with termites and other insects.
