Officers at the Marine Safety Control Pattaya City station at the Bali Hai Pier were notified from a speedboat operator via radio that a tourist on a speedboat had been seriously injured at 10 am this morning, July 31st, 2019.
Emergency responders arrived at the boat which had arrived at the pier to find a 55-year-old Chinese tourist in serious pain and injured. He had broken his leg severely during a fall.
He was given first aid at the scene and immediately taken to a hospital. The speedboat captain told the Marine Saftey Control that the Chinese tourist was walking around the boat while they were traveling at high speed in Pattaya Bay.
