Team members and supporters attended the ceremony to say their final goodbyes to Duangpetch.
The 18-year-cremated old’s remains, along with those of the other 12 Wild Boars football players who were rescued from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai in 2018, were given to his distraught family on Saturday at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok as they were flying home from England.
In August of last year, Duangpetch was awarded a scholarship to attend the Brooke House College Football School in Leicestershire.
On February 12, a teacher discovered him unresponsive in his dorm room at the academy. He was then rushed to the hospital. He was put on a ventilator, but passed away at Kettering General Hospital two days later.
The teen’s death’s cause is still under investigation.
Wild Boar “Domashes “‘s are dispersed in the Mekong as his family and colleagues bid him farewell.
Over 100 fan club members and members of the press helped the bereaved family and friends transport Duangpetch’s ashes from Phra That Doi Wao Temple in Mae Sai district to a pier in Chiang Saen district on Monday.
After that, they boarded a boat and traveled out across the Mekong, where Duangpetch’s family scattered his ashes during a ceremony officiated by Phra Kru Prayut Chetiyanukarn, the temple’s abbot.
A second boat with Wild Boar players, coaches, and a toy boat with Duangpetch’s stuff and autographed footballs drifted behind them.
