BANGKOK, October 13 (Itar-Tass) - In Thailand’s hospital remain 16 Russian tourists, who got injured during a bus accident in the Kanchanaburi province on Friday, spokesperson of the Vejthani Hospital Mariya Zhigunova told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“Five patients were transferred today from the intense care to regular unit. Now, 16 Russians continue their treatment here. The others have left the hospital,” she said. “Doctors say the state of the woman, which remains at the intense care unit, has been demonstrating positive dynamics.”
“Most probably, tomorrow she may be transferred to the regular unit,” she added.
The traffic accident happened in Thailand’s Kanchanaburi province at about 09:00 Moscow time. The overturned bus belongs to the Pegas-touristic Company. It took tourists from Pattaya to the Khwae Yai River. Among 42 tourists on the bus, there were four children. One tourist died, and 35 got injured. 28 Russians were taken to the Vejthani Hospital on Friday, where 26 of them remained there for treatment.
Thailand’s police reported the accident’s reason was the vehicle’s disorder.
This was not the first accident with Russians in the region. On August 9, in the Kanchanaburi province a bus, which took Russian tourists to the Khwae Yai River, got in an accident. That time, 26 tourists were injured.
