A mother in Lampang in Thailand's north went to report to police after her ten year old son needed 38 stitches in a head wound.
He was the victim of someone on the back of a pick-up that threw water at him containing a large lump of ice.
Thanicha Khlaikaew, 28, told Pol Capt Sayan Maneekaew that her son was playing by the side of the Tha Khrao Noi road at 1pm on Saturday when he was hit by the ice in the water.
It was thrown by a man in a striped shirt on a bronze color Vigo pick-up.
The vehicle sped off as people tried to stop it.
The boy's grandmother Bunreuang Khlaikaew, 64, said it was terrible. The lump of ice had spikes like a durian and caused a total of seven wounds to her grandson's head.
He needed 38 stitches and the cost at the hospital was 7,000 baht.
Thaivisa notes that stories in the Thai media before Songkran suggested that people could go to jail for such illegal behavior.
