Associate Professor Dr. Weerasak Charatchaisri or Dr. Moo, a doctor specializing in forensic science at SWU, posted on the Facebook page Dr. Moo Weerasak stated that public van passengers Yasothon-Mukdahan, 5 people traveling during Songkran Finally vomited. Almost completely unconscious by each passenger Feeling restless, unable to breathe, and dizzy until fainting. Personally, I think It was likely exposure to carbon monoxide gas. Caused by the combustion of automobile fuel And there was a leak inside the van. This may be due to a leak in the exhaust system.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, blurred vision. In severe cases, unconsciousness may occur.
