They were all revived except an old lady who was taken to hospital but she survived too. 

Driver Prakhiang, 54, and his wife sitting next to him said they were both fine. He said he had been hired to take the workers from Surat top Mae Sot for the Songkran holidays. 

He said there was nothing wrong with his Toyota Commuter van and it was not likely to be a problem with the CNG gas system. 

His wife said that as they traveled along people started passing out. Soon they were all unconscious except the baby. 

Prakhiang surmised it might have been something they ate – they had eaten at four gas station on the way. 

Another theory is that all the possessions of the passengers blocked the air-con vents causing them to lack oxygen.
