Pattaya News reported that 13 people suffered stab wounds, and two among them suffered critical injuries and "passed out after getting impaled with knives in the back."

The workers had decided to celebrate a colleague's son's three-month birthday, reportedly a local tradition.

The men worked all night, from Monday, August 8, and stopped by a restaurant when the group were involved in a large fight over loud music, according to reports.

It is not clear exactly what started the confrontation. Some workers even left the party to grab knives and came back to resume the brawl, reports said.

The child was thankfully uninjured.
