Searchers on Tuesday recovered the body of a Ranong woman who was a passenger in a pickup truck that had been swept into a canal in a flash flood on Saturday night.
The four-day search ended with the discovery of the body of Nokkaew Namsantiah, 39, submerged beneath tree branches and other debris.
The location was not far from the accident scene near the Wang Phak Bung Bridge in Tambon Naga, Suk Samran district.
Sutas Kaewpradit, head of Moo 5 village, said Nokkaew’s husband, Samart Namsantiah, 49, had been driving the truck and managed to free himself.
The pickup was swept 600 metres downstream, where it was found empty on Sunday.
Ranong Governor Jatuphot Piyamputtra ordered a search for the missing woman.
Warnings of heavy rainfall and possible flash floods have been issued in Ranong. On Monday night a flash flood affected 250 homes and vast areas of farmland in 11 villages in Tambon Pak Chan, Kra Buri district.
