A Thai man used soy sauce to fake suicide on Monday in hopes of winning back his wife and son.
The man, 50 year old Watchara, was estranged from his wife, 40 year old Pla, due to conflicts between the couple. He lives in the southern Chumphon province, while she lives in Pattaya.
On Monday, Watchara travelled to Pattaya, hoping to win back Pla and their son. But when he went to their house, no one was home. Watchara then contacted Pla, but she refused to return to him.
Watchara then poured soy sauce on a knife and put the knife up to his neck before taking a selfie. He sent the selfie to his son, who alerted Pla.
Pla reported the incident to the police. Police and paramedics arrived at Watchara’s residence, and he admitted that he had made the whole thing up. Police warned Watchara not to do this again.
