The drama happened Tuesday next to a pond where fish are reared in the Theparak Road area of Bang Plee east of Bangkok.

Police found the taxi driver dead by the side of the pond and his taxi virtually submerged in the water.

Pond owner Apiwat Petchnoi said that he had seen the taxi at a distance pull up by the side of the water and thought nothing of it. But then he heard a gunshot and saw the taxi rolling into the pond as a black shirted man with short hair ran off.

He ran over and helped the taxi driver from his seat and put him by the side of the pond as he phoned for help. But the taxi driver died.

Sanook.com reported that the gunman then stole a motorbike belonging to a Pakistani ice-cream seller and made good his escape.
