Pattaya —

Pattaya Deputy Mayor and a representative from the construction company visited a Thai couple who plunged into a large construction hole on Soi Buakhao 15 and were hospitalized on Thursday, August 18th.

Pattaya Deputy Mayor Manoch Nongyai and a representative from Aktavee Company, the contractor of the construction site, visited the couple namely Mr. Arthit Saengarun and Ms. Orachon Huay Yai who both sustained many injuries after their motorbike plunged into a 3-meter deep construction hole in the street on Soi Buakhao 15.

The deputy visited the couple today at Bangkok Hospital Pattaya and gave them a bouquet of fruits to express his apology. Mr. Arthit reportedly suffered minor injuries, but Ms. Orachon had two broken ribs and was advised to remain in a hospital for now.

Deputy Manoch carried on that the hole on Soi Buakhao 15 was dug in preparation for a storm drain pipe. In fact, there was a warning sign for vehicles at the hole, and a narrow path beside the hole was left for pedestrians only, the deputy added. Even so, he was still regretful and said that such an accident should never have happened.

Meanwhile, a representative from the Aktavee Company affirmed the couple that they would fully cover their medical expenses and expedite the work to prevent further harm, as the area was populous.
