89 year old Grandmother injured by falling Coconut tree branch on Bangsaen Beach

Bangsaen Beach

An 89 year old Grandmother working as a vendor on Bangsaen Beach was injured around 10:30 this morning by a falling branch from a Coconut tree.

She was given medical care at the scene and was bleeding heavily and was taken to a local hospital. She has since recovered and been released.

Other food vendors at the beach said they have told area officials many times to cut and trim the trees and claimed they warned that this could happen.

It is believed that a strong breeze this morning caused the dead tree branch to fall on the woman, identified as Ms. Bai Po Suphapha.

Vendors stated to the press that they hoped this incident, while unfortunate, would serve as a warning to area officials to trim the many trees in the area.
