Facebook user Priyapath Doungmak wrote about this perplexing situation after sister fell into the drain pipe at 5 p.m. yesterday causing her right leg to break and her left leg fracture.

As she waited for her sister to undergo surgery at Phayathai 2 Hospital last night, neither a government agency nor the BTS management had contacted them to ask about her condition.

Today she contacted three offices and got the following reply:

1) BTS management said this area is not under their responsibility;

2) Phayathai district office said this area comes under the jurisdiction of Ratchathewi district office;

3) Ratchathewi district office said this area is the responsibility of BTS.
