Yesterday, Pak Kret police found the bodies of two girls floating near a pier in front of Kredtrakarn Protection and Occupational Development Center in Nonthaburi.

The two girls, aged 14 and 16, reportedly attempted to escape the Center by swimming across the Chao Phraya River. However, thanks to the river’s high waves, the pair was forced under.

According to Dailynews, an initial police report revealed that the teenagers might have wanted to go back home to celebrate the Songkran festival or could not stand pressure from seniors at the center.
