AC­CI­DENT: Twenty-nine fac­tory work­ers from Buri Ram were in­jured when the floor of a sea­side restau­rant col­lapsed into the sea at Bang Saray beach in Chon Buri’s Sat­tahip district yes­ter­day.

Lo­cal po­lice were in­formed of the in­ci­dent at 12.30pm. They said the in­jured were among a group of about 200 em­ploy­ees of Buri­ram Sugar Plc who were on a field trip there.

They were taken for a meal at the Ruan­ta­lay Bangsaray Restau­rant, said Pol Lt Patananant Som­nual, deputy inspector-gen­eral of Sat­tahip po­lice sta­tion.

The restau­rant sits above the sea on a wooden floor built on con­crete pil­lars.

As the group were walk­ing to their seats, they stopped to look at the aquar­i­ums that are a fea­ture of the restau­rant. Sud­denly, part of the wooden floor col­lapsed, leav­ing a hole about six me­tres wide and 11m long.
