The motorcyclist, Mr Chakraphan Chuaduangphuy, 35, fell into the large water main, with a 3.5-meter diameter and 7 meters deep, on Pracha Uthit road in front of Rat Burana market close to midnight.
Police and rescuers rushed to the scene of the accident, and by using a pulley, pulled the still conscious motorcyclist up to the ground with this taking around 30 minutes, then sent him to Bangkok 1 Hospital.
