A man was found dead under a railway bridge in Phun Phin district of this southern province on Sunday morning. He was believed to have fallen to his death from a train, police said.
The body of the man, wearing a pair of shorts and a green T-shit, was found at about 11 am by two boys who were playing in water under the bridge near Moo 2 village of tambon Khao Hua Khwai. His limbs were broken and his abdomen cut open, exposing the intestines.
