Mum Shares Grief After 2 Year Old Boy Dies From Thailand Store Armed Robbery

Jia Ling

When a wife loses her husband, she is called a widow. When a child loses his/her parents, he/she is called an orphan. But what do you call a parent who has lost his/her child? English has no word for it, perhaps because the pain is so unimaginable, there is no word that can describe it.

Unfortunately, I’wi Wilaiwan Triton is now that parent. Her 2-year-old son was shot dead in the head during an armed robbery in a gold store that took place in Lop buri, Thailand on Thursday night, 9 January 2020. She had recently shared a heartbreaking post on her Facebook page over the loss of her child.

She hopes that he would not suffer such a tragic fate in his next life. 

The post has since gone viral, with over 104,000 shares. Many Facebook users sending their condolences to the parents in their comments.

Thailand Armed Robbery: 2-Year-Old Sustained Injuries, Dies


The boy had walked past an Aurora gold shop inside the Robinson shopping mall with his mother, only to be confronted with a gold robber.


Clad with a “full-face woollen balaclava, black shirt and camouflage trousers”, the robber started shooting people as soon as he arrived into the store.
