In the midst of monsoon season in Thailand, a 79-year-old man woke up and began to look for his wife when suddenly, he heard a loud rumble and his home collapsed into the river. He tried to escape, but his leg got caught in debris and he became stuck chest-deep in floodwaters. After 30 minutes of calling for help, community members rushed to his aid, freeing him and carrying him out of the water. Fortunately, his wife had left home earlier that morning and was not present during the incident. The man is in stable condition.
