A friend of the pair and witness to the accident, Amornthep Tipnongwaeng, 25, told officers who arrived at the scene that the trio had been drinking alcohol near the station when Walailak Sukama, 28, and Amnaj Nawantib, 25, decided they wanted a photo with a train about to leave the station, whilst posing they were hit by an inbound train.
