THAILAND : Water used by police against protesters is laced with tear gas

โดย Kong Wannasakon … ใครโดนน้ำสีม่วงเป็นแบบนี้บอกด้วยครับผลจากการโดนไอ้น้ำสีม่วงๆ ที่ตำรวจฉีดใส่ผู้ชุมนุมเมื่อวาน แขนเพื่อนผมกลายเป็นแบบนี้ แค่อยากถามผู้รู้หน่อย ว่าสารพิษแบบนี้ ตำรวจสามารถนำมาใช้กับประชาชนได้ด้วยเหรอ ดูจากแผลน่าจะเป็นกรดเข้มข้นมากทีเดียว เมื่อวานยังคุยกับเล่นกันอยู่ ว่าสียังกะน้ำยาล้างห้องน้ำ

By Wannasakon Kong … anybody got a purple water this is telling.

The purple-coloured water used by the police against protesters during clashes in front of Metropolitan Police Bureau and the Government House contained tear gas residue.

Professor Dr Winai Warangnukul, head of the Toxicology Centre of Ramathibodi hospital, said Wednesday that the centre had examined water samples and found traces of tear gas in the samples. However, he assured that the tear gas content was small and would not pose danger to the body.

Dr Winai noted that there was a misunderstanding that the tear gas was acidic and that the substance could be neutralized with water mixed with alkaline.  He said that the best way to treat victims attacked by tear gas was to use clean water to wash their eyes or body exposed to the gas.

He also suggested the victims to dust off residue of tear gas from their bodies.

The water used against the protesters was not mixed with tear gas but the water caused the tear gas cloud to scatter covering wider areas.
