A teenage waiter at a Pattaya seafood restaurant is
alive, but sore after getting his head stuck between floors in a service
Rescue workers try to free 16-yewar-old Yongyut Prakobsuk who somehow
managed to get his head stuck in the dumbwaiter.
Yongyut Prakobsuk, 16, suffered cuts to the head and
neck in the May 5 accident at the Amon Seafood eatery on Second Road.
Sawang Boriboon medics arrived to find the ladís head hanging down to
the first floor with his body in the lift on the second floor. Although
seriously injured and bleeding, he was conscious and taken to Pattaya
Memorial Hospital after being freed.
No one is sure how the teen - working at the
restaurant during school holidays - got his head caught. Nonthaphon
Rojsakulpruet, the 31-year-old daughter of the restaurant owner, said
Amon has been open for 20 years and nothing similar had ever happened.
The elevator is a simple food-delivery lift that can only be sent up
from the bottom floor and sent down from the top floor. A 14-year-old
friend of Yongyut also denied knowledge of how it occurred, saying he
simply called for help once he noticed his buddy trapped.
