Two tourists were injured yesterday when they ran into a low-hanging telecom cable hanging low across a road. The two women were tourists sightseeing on a rented motorbike in Kanchanaburi, 123 kilometres west of Bangkok. Police say the incident occurred on the Kanchanaburi-Dan Ma Kham Tia road in front of a petrol station.

Christina Serma Gandia, from Spain, who was driving the motorbike, suffered a deep cut to her neck, while pillion rider Ana Clara Moncada of Argentina sustained minor injuries. The women told police they wanted to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and rented a small motorbike. Their sightseeing was cut short by a cable hanging across road at neck level, which swept them off the bike and sprawling onto the road.

They were both taken to a local hospital for treatment and further examination.

Police are investigating, and say they intend to find out which company the cable belongs to and hold them legally responsible. The two women are also considering taking legal action.
