Juling's condition worsens
Condition of Juling Pangamoon worsens on Tuesday but doctors pledged to fight by all means to save her life.
Dr Sumet Peerawut, director of Prince Songkhla Hospital, said that Juling's condition showed no improvement and she has to rely on respiratory equipment for the second day.
During the weekend, she could breath by herself but on Monday her condition changed and had to use the respiratory equipment since then.
Juling, a Chiang Rai native, and another teacher at a school in Narathiwat's Rangae district were taken hostage and beaten last week by angry villagers who wanted security authorities to release two men arrested in connection with the murders of two marines in the same district last year.
As of Tuesday, Juling was still unconscious and an Xray on her brain and abdomen showed no improvement.
However, Dr Sumet said the doctors will fight by all means to save her life and will not take the respiratory equipment out.
Outside the intensive care unit, hundreds of Juling's friends and people queued to sign well wishers' book to give moral support to her. Her parents who flied from Chiang Rai was at her bedside.
