Police and scuba divers from the Kusol Sattha Surat Thani Foundation rushed to the main pier in Tambon Talad after being alerted that a man had jumped into the river.
The divers searched the river bed for about an hour before they found the body of Adol Sukkid, 56, a resident of Surat Thani’s Kanchanadit district. His right arm had been amputated above the elbow.
Phaisal Saenghiran, a fruit vendor nearby, said he saw the man drinking alone at the pier before nightfall and a moment later he heard the sound of a bottle being smashed. He turned to see the man standing up and plunging into the river.
