Tragedy struck as five men, who were working in a sewer system lost consciousness and died.
The incident occurred around 10:45 on Friday morning in the Bang Na area of Bangkok.
The men were underground carrying out maintenance work in the sewage system of a food processing factory, Soi 20 of Bang Na Trat Road, when they got into trouble.
When emergency services arrived, the men were comatose and failed to react to CPR. Four of the workers were pronounced dead at the scene with a fifth passing away in hospital.
Police are awaiting autopsy reports to determine the cause of death but it appears that either suffocation or inhalation of toxic fumes could be to blame.
Our thoughts are with the men’s families.
