There has been a Jet Ski explosion in Bang Saen Beach, Chonburi Province. The Jet Ski rider tried at least 10 times to start the Jet Ski, then when the owner offered to turn it on the Jet Ski exploded after only 2 tries.
The Local rescue team in Chonburi received a notification on 31 July 2020 about a Jet Ski explosion with one injured person. The explosion took place right on the famous Bang Saen beach close to Bangkok. The local rescue team notified the Saen Suk Fire Station before heading to the beach.
The rescue team and the firefighters arrived to find a Blue/Black Jet Ski on fire. Officials were able to put out the fire but the whole Jet Ski was burned down.
The explosion seemed to come from the engine. There was an injured person named Suthep Jarworrak 46 years old. Luckily, he only suffered minor injuries of some burns on the skin.
The rescue team administered first aid to make sure that the victim was safe before delivering the man to the Burapha University Hospital.
Jakkrit Duangthip 42 years old the rider stated that he always uses this specific Jet Ski. He came to the beach as usual but the Jet Ski wouldn’t start-up.
After trying for at least 10 times Jakkrit then told Suthep who is the owner of the Jet Ski about the issue. Suthep walked to the Jet Ski to help, on his first try it wouldn’t start-up but then on the second try, the Jet Ski exploded. Jakkrit believes that he was saved by a Buddhist amulet that he keeps with him at all times.
The amulet was created by a highly respected monk in Thailand from Ayutthaya Province. Many people who work on the water and rescue team members also believe in the power of the same monk.
