A foreign teacher of Silpakorn University was electrocuted to death on Saturday night after he rode a bicycle through flooded streets near the university’s Sanamchan campus outside Bangkok.
Laurent Hennequin, 50, a teacher from the French Department of the Faculty of Arts, fell from his bicycle into water where he was electrocuted to death on Rajvithee Road in Nakhon Prathom province, according to a rescue volunteer.
The teacher was found lying in the water. Rescue volunteers attempted to restart his heart but eventually failed. “Nueng”, a rescue volunteer at the scene, said the electric current had come from a nearby electronic advertising sign.
