BANGKOK, October 12 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s 28 citizens, who got injured in a bus accident in Thailand on Friday, have been delivered to a Bangkok hospital. Six of them, including a 10 year-old, remain at the intensive care unit, Russia’s consular service told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“Two women are still in coma. On Friday, Thai doctors made three necessary surgeries. More surgeries are due today,” Head of the Consular Section Andrei Dvornikov said. Russian diplomats are at the hospital to provide necessary assistance. “On Friday, 28 people were taken to the hospital in Bangkok.”
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.
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.
