Dead, injured bodies: Who to call?

Paul in Patong asks : Many o’ late night in Phuket, I’ve come across an accident scene. Sometimes, there are rescue workers already on the scene. Other times, not, and I’m never sure what to do. Thankfully, someone usually stops to call for help, but should there be nobody there in the future, who can I call to collect injured or dead bodies in Phuket?
