Wall collapses but no-one seriously hurt.

A foreigner had a lucky escape after a large chunk of wall from a demolition site fell on him as he was taking a Saturday morning stroll.

The man – aged about 45 – was hit on the upper arm and shoulder but was not seriously hurt.

Whoever did it refused to come out and take responsibility.

A man called Chaiyo Patrachai who said he was driving on his way to work in the Asoke area when he saw the chunk of concrete masonry fall on the visitor to Thailand.

He stopped and went over to help but they were unable to summon anyone from the demolition site to take responsibility.

Chaiyo said that the masonry had fallen off a backhoe onto the pavement.

There is only a light fence protecting passersby and no netting in the area. There is also no signage to warn of work in progress.

The injured man, who was not named, declined hospital treatment and went back to his hotel.
