Sunandha Kumariratana, the Queen of Thailand, Drowned While Her Subjects Watched Because They Were Forbidden to Touch Her

Sunandha Kumariratana

In 1880, Sunandha Kumariratana, the queen of Thailand, drowned helplessly as her able bodied subjects simply watched from safety. This surely has to be one of the oddest things for a person to do. It’s part of our basic instinct to help someone who is in imminent danger. Yet Sunandha Kumariratana, the queen of Thailand drowned. So why did her subjects sit back and watch her perish, knowing full well what was happening? Simple put, they feared for their own life.

Over time we have become well aware of odd deaths throughout history. Some of them, such as poor Frank Hayes, defy belief. And this happens to be just one of them. For a person to drown when there are able bodied people present who can prevent it is almost unheard of. Even more unheard of is that no one, not a single person wanted to help. I mean, far out, a person is drowning and you just let it happen! Even murderers get a helping hand.

Plus n one would want to die bcs they save a person, Moreover a queen. AND at that time people were actually demanding for democracy… Read more »
