More than 30 years ago iconic Thai band “Carabao” sang about Bangkok being the place where people fell down drains.

Bangkok - where people are still falling down the drains after all these years | News by Samui TimesIf a video posted on Facebook yesterday is anything to go, nothing much has changed!

The clip – on the page of Jason R. Hofer – shows two students happily walking to get some snacks in Muang Ek north of the city

Then one of the ladies falls down a drain hurting her leg.

First year student Kantaporn Intaraprasit who attends Bangkok University in the area had to go to Rangsit Hospital for treatment.

She wasted time and money through no fault of her own – the drain had no cover, said the poster.

The poster called on the authorities to take note and thanked motorcycle rank drivers in the area for their help.

Carabao sang in their satirical mid eighties hit “Made in Thailand” about Bangkok being the place where people fell down drains.
