A 3 Year Old Stayed with her Mom’s Body for 3 Days

My sister told me the news about a 3 year old girl named nong Goryarh that stayed with her mom’s body for 3 days.  She and her mom lived in a 3 story townhouse in Bangkok Thailand and her 35 year old mom died of seizure, heart failure around November 10th, 2012.  She didn’t know that her mom passed away and thought that her mom was sick, and slept with her mom every night that was soaked with blood.

Her mom’s co-worker called her sister that she didn’t show up for work for 3 days. Her sister went to the house and the gate was locked.  She went to ask a male neighbor next door to help open the gate. When she came back with the neighbor, she saw her niece, nong Goryarh standing inside the gate calling her name.  Her niece white T-shirt was stained with blood, she knew then something was wrong. Photos below are from a Thai news article.

It’s so sad to read a story like this, the little girl was healthy and in good condition when they found her.

Her aunt took her in.

I could imagine her mom was worried about her.  When her aunt asked nong Goryarh if she had anything to eat or drink,  she said that her mom had fixed milk for her to drink and played with her everyday. And at night she went up to sleep with her mom.

After she went to live with her aunt, nong Goryarh said that her mom came to live with her and sang her a lullaby every night. Before the funeral her sister said that she would smell a very strong odor at her house, and after the funeral the smell has changed to a very strong incense smell.  A month after the funeral they came on a show called People Showing Off Ghost.  The show is in Thai language.

It’s so sad to see nong Goryarh, and everything seems like a blur to her. She told them that she stayed with her mom, and that her mom took care of her during those 3 days.

What really puzzled everyone was how nong Goryarh opened this door to come outside to see her aunt.  It’s a slide door and she is not tall enough to open the latch to slide, see screenshot below.

nong Goryarh said that her mom opened the door for her and told her to go see her aunt outside.

On the second video, they asked a median to communicate with nong Goryarh’s mom, and he asked if her mom was there.  nong Goryarh nodded ‘yes’.

And also nodded when asked if her mom was standing behind the man. The man on the left is the median.

The last video is the message from nong Goryarh’s mom communicating through the median to her older sister asking her to take care of nong Goryarh as her own daughter. Her sister agreed to care for nong Goryarh, and I do hope that her mom will rest in peace.


  1. Such a sweet and touching story! Couldn’t help, but cried. May the mother rest in peace. That is one loving and strong woman to still take care of her daughter even after death. I am glad Nong Goryarth is in good hand of her aunt. Thank you! (Been so long since I visited and am glad to be back)

  2. Nye that is quite a story. I believe children have an extra sight that is lost with age. So glad to read this all worked out well for such a sweet girl.

  3. Such heartbreaking news. Did they mention if her mom had any prior health issues? Then again sometimes I hear about people who are perfectly healthy just end up dead for no reason. But I’m glad the little girl is being cared for by her aunt.

    • cn, her mom had seizure since she was little and she was treated at the hospital before this incident. I think her aunt was kind of skeptical at first, I didn’t mention that her grandmother that lived there died 2 months prior to this and they feared that the girl might be the cause. In the last video was about the little girl’s mother communicating to her sister through that man and he said for her to forget all the bad things that had happened. That the little girl was not the cause of all the deaths in the family, and to care for her as if she was her own child. Her sister promised that she would, so I was glad to hear. It was a good show, but I didn’t like the fact that they brought the girl there and she heard everything.
