The sad thing is these accidents are completely preventable - make it mandatory to install RCD or a similar cut-off mechanism in the breaker panel, and also start prosecuting people for negligence in case of third party deaths. No one should ever use an extension cord with exposed wire, and leaving it somewhere others can pick it up and get electrocuted should make them at least partially liable.

Amazing that (some) Thais don't think about those things themselves - who on earth thinks it's a good idea to use a clearly broken extension cord?
