Motorcycle stunt goes awry at Chiang Mai fair, stuntman hospitalised

An unfortunate accident occurred yesterday during a daring motorcycle stunt at the winter fair and the Chiang Mai Good OTOP fair. The stuntman, known only as Tae, was injured when his motorcycle lost control during a barrel-climbing show and fell, hitting the floor hard.

This incident happened behind the provincial government centre, where the event was taking place. Emergency services and first responders from the Nakhon Ping Hospital were notified of the accident and promptly arrived at the scene. They found Tae unconscious due to a head injury, and he was quickly taken to the hospital for treatment.

Tae, a professional stuntman, was performing a thrilling motorcycle barrel-climbing show. He was driving his motorcycle in a barrel from the bottom to the top edge, when suddenly, the vehicle lost control.

The motorcycle, along with Tae, fell and hit the ground, leaving him unconscious in front of shocked spectators. The event staff immediately alerted the authorities, who swiftly arrived to help and transport him to the hospital.
