JS 100 traffic radio station was alerted by a Chulalongkorn University official that Anhthi Vanngo was missing after the fire at Rachathevi Apartment was put out. The student was attending in a post graduate course at the university’s Faculty of Science.
The station then phoned around the hospitals where those affected by the fire were sent.
A nurse at Ramathibodi Hospital told the station staff that a Vietnamese female affected by the fire had been admitted and her face matched the photo of the missing Vietnamese student.
Because she was on a respirator, the nurse wrote the name Anhthi Vanngo and showed it to her. The patient nodded so the JS 100 radio contacted the director of the Petroleum Geoscience International Course, Chulalongkorn University.
Her room was on the 14th floor of the apartment block and one of her friends who managed to escape the fire told the official that she was last seen unconscious but her friend could not help her.
At least, three people died in the blaze.
