MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) - The tourists, who got in a bus accident in Thailand, had arrived from Russia’s Urals and the Far East, Head of Rostourism’s Press Service Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“We have information, that in hospitals remain 16 Russians, where eight require medical assistance, while the others are their relatives, accompanying them,” she said. “The injured are receiving all necessary medical aid.” One woman died on the spot, Shchegolkova added.
The other tourists, who were on the bus, have returned to their hotels.
The traffic accident happened in Thailand’s Kanchanaburi province at about 05:00 GMT. 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.
