Rescue workers performed CPR but Preecha soon died from blood loss.

 

If the cause of death was severe blood loss, surely applying CPR without first (and miraculously?) preventing fatal blood loss can only have hastened that process?

I'm not an expert (all I know is that it's probably a bad idea to remove the plug that's stopping one's body from spurting all over the place), but the quote above gave the me the image of somebody applying CPR in the same rhythm with which the pool of blood expanded (originally, I had a little fountain in mind, but that's probably unrealistic).

They would probably have been trying to stem the blood loss (by applying pressure to the wound) while applying CPR because his heart has arrested or he has stopped breathing.

Desperate stuff because the guy is gone but people will try anyway.

If that's a picture of the grinding wheel in question, that is for cutting steel.

Perhaps he was cutting stone with a wheel designed to cut steel?

It seems that most jobs are done with grinders in Thailand. I hardly ever see or hear them being used in the U.K.  everything from cutting plastic pipes to wood to cutting metal and stone. I never drive past any construction site without the constant noise of grinders.

Proper tools for proper jobs should be used.

Many a times there is compromise due to lack of work knowledge and availability sadly.

Yep, that’s definitely for cutting steel. Diamond wheels are used for masonry.
