SI SA KET - The grieving parents of a three-year-old boy who died after being left behind for seven hours in a converted pickup truck used as a kindergarten minivan are demanding the school take full responsibility for his death. 

Boonma Nuansai, the owner of the kindergarten, said the school has agreed to initially pay the family 30,000 baht for the funeral of Suriyakarn "Nong Potter" Phakan, who died on Tuesday.

The kindergarten is also deciding on the course of action it should take against Ampika Phechnam, 32, the teacher who drove the pickup and was in charge of the students that day.
