The incident took place at Wat Simaram Child Development Centre where the boy, named Kong Bin, was found unconscious in the back of the van with his muscles contracted and mouth open.
His mother had earlier sent him to the centre in the van, but when the teacher later sent photos of the classroom, she noticed that Kong Bin was missing.
When the teacher said the boy was nowhere to be seen, the mother immediately contacted administration staff. They launched a search and discovered the boy in the vehicle.
He was sent to Phipun Hospital and later transferred to Maharaj Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital and placed on a ventilator.
A doctor told the boy’s aunt that Kong Bin’s brain remains swollen and he has not responded to anything for a few days. The mother is trying to cope with her emotion, the aunt added.
