A man in Thailand accidentally abandoned his wife on the side of the road and carried on driving for 159.6 km believing she was asleep in the back of the car.
Boontom Chaimoon, 55, and Amnuay Chaimoon, 49, set off on Christmas Day to drive through the night to her hometown in the province of Maha Sarakham.
But the driver had to pull over his Isuzu pickup truck to urinate in the night and stopped the car at the side of the road. After he stepped out of the car, Amnuay decided she could relieve herself too and ducked into a nearby jungle for a quick bathroom break, according to the New York Post.
When she returned, there was no sight of the car or her husband. She soon realized her husband had left without her, leaving her stranded. More so, she did not have her mobile phone with her as it was kept in a bag inside the car. Since it was dark, the woman was terrified and confused, but she decided to walk to seek help.
