A senior electrical officer told his bosses that a female trader sleeping on the sidewalk at Cha-Am beach had been electrocuted when a high power “arc” cable plummeted to the ground outside a 7/11.

The cable got entangled around 45 year old Somporn Petchpakdee’s neck as she was “cooked to a cinder” on the sidewalk. 

The grisly information came in a Line group message from Suchart Kreuakaew to his PEA superiors.

At 4.15 am Friday the Provincial Electrical Authority had received reports from consumers in the southern area of the seaside town of a power cut. 

The women – a trader in fried locusts – was found at 4.30 am. 

The incident happened by a 7/11 near the Saeng Thong condo. 

Somporn, from Phijit, usually slept elsewhere but she had had an argument with friends and chose the sidewalk to rest her head for the night. 

The body was being kept at the temple of Wat Tham Kaew, said Suchart. 

He had so far been unable to contact any relatives to offer them the standard compensation.
