BANGKOK, May 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Four Russian tourists were hurt as their minibus got in a traffic accident on the way from Koh Chang Island to Pattaya, Vitaly Anopov, an officer from the Russian embassy in Thailand, told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
According to Anopov, the accident took place on May 5 but the Thai authorities informed the Russian embassy only on Friday.
Pattaya is Thailand’s most popular vacationing destination among Russian tourists.
According to reports coming from Pattaya, one of the injured Russians, a 35-year-old woman, is in serious condition. Three others are in stable condition, Anopov noted.
Initially, the injured Russian tourists were taken to a local hospital in Rayong Province. By now they have been transferred to a hospital in Bangkok, where they are receiving satisfactory treatment and there is no need to take them for treatment to Russia, Anopov said. Moreover, the woman with bad injuries cannot be transported to Moscow.
The driver of the tourist bus died instantly.
