In addition to the young girl, an adult woman, a citizen of the Russian Federation, also died during the collision.
As a result of a collision of a tourist catamaran with rocks on the island of Phuket in Thailand, one Russian woman was killed, and 6 more Russian citizens were injured. This was reported by Russian media Shot.
According to the Telegram channel, the incident occurred in the area of Maithon Island, when the boat crashed into rocks near the shore while returning from an excursion to Phi Phi Island. The deceased Russian woman was on a boat, along with other tourists, among whom was a large family – parents and three children. As a result of the collision, a mother, father and 2 children were injured, and a 5-year-old girl died.
After the incident, they were taken to the hospital with injuries of varying severity: a woman had several fractures, internal bleeding and bruises to internal organs, her husband had a lung injury, a 14-year-old child had scratches and bruises, a 3-year-old child had a traumatic brain injury , he doesn’t talk and is very scared. There was an accompanying person with the family; he was also injured and was hospitalized in moderate condition.
Let us remind you that in early September in the Pacific Ocean, sharks attacked a catamaran with Russians. Sharks attacked the boat for 2 days in a row and seriously damaged it. The Russian travelers were saved by a foreign ship that was heading to Shanghai.
And in early June, a shark was caught in Egypt that ate a Russian. Authorities closed local beaches after the tragedy because the blood could attract new predators. Professor Kirill Kuzishchin believes that such cases will become more frequent due to climate change.
