When only the best amulet will do! Deputy police chief survives Benz devastation

Thais were marvelling at what they termed the miracle escape of a deputy chief of police after an accident in the north east of the country on Sunday. 

It was clear to them that only the power of a very special amulet could have saved this driver.

Pol Lt Col Natthaphon Tongdech, 57 – deputy chief at Na Kae police station in Nakhon Phanom – only suffered a few cuts to his head after he fell asleep behind the wheel of his Mercedes Benx S200 between Khok Hin Hae and Tha Lat sub-districts around 4.30pm. 

He was off duty.

Pictures showed him conscious in the completely devastated wreckage of his car that had broken in two after hitting a lamppost. 

77kaoded reported that the survivor is a very popular policeman in the area who has been deputy there for two years. It is the hometown of his wife. 

A steady stream of police colleagues and members of the public were visiting him in Nakhon Phanom hospital where he is being kept in for observation. 

The media reported that he tested negative for alcohol. 

Natthaphon said he was tired from all the work he has to do and fell asleep at the wheel. 

And the amulet?

It is a 1975 vintage Phrathat Phanom – especially good and sought after for protecting the wearer.
