BANGKOK, October 7. /TASS/. The six-year-old Russian boy injured on Monday in a rockfall which killed his mother has been moved from a clinic in Phetchaburi (Phetburi) province to the Thai capital Bangkok, a top diplomat from the Russian Embassy to Thailand told TASS on Tuesday.
The head of the embassy’s consular department, Vladimir Sosnov, said the province’s governor had joined the efforts, a reanimobile was found promptly and the boy was transported to Bangkok on Tuesday.
He said the boy felt well en route on the whole, but then his temperature rose. The boy, Alexander, is now in Siriraj Hospital, one of the best clinics of Bangkok boasting King Phumiphon Adunyadet among its patients.
“Tomorrow medics will decide how and when he can be transported to Russia,” Sosnov said. He also said the body of Alexander’s mother was still in Phetburi province, adding that her sister was likely to arrive in Bangkok on Wednesday.
On Monday, a huge stone tumbling down from a rock damaged several residential premises of a temple at its foot, landing on a small house where a Russian woman with a child were at the moment. The woman, Alsiya Bakiyeva, died at the site, while her six-year-old son was hospitalized with a hip fracture, fractured ribs and a strong abdominal contusion.
According to eyewitnesses, there had been a heavy rain and wind before the rockfall.
