He could hear only the sound of water on the other side. Ultimately, Young and four others climbed up the conning tower to attempt escape.

The passengers were primarily Muslim pilgrims returning to Nonthaburi Province after having attended a ceremony in Ayutthaya. Not far into the journey, the ferry turned to avoid another boat, which caused it to crash into a concrete bridge pillar.
The lower deck of the two-level vessel ended up submerged.
A chaotic scene ensued. Rescuers threw ropes to passengers swimming to shore, while others desperately tried to resuscitate victims pulled onto the riverbank. In the end, 27 people died, and roughly 40 others were injured. It took two days to pull most of the bodies out of the wreck.
