British teacher stabbed

PHUKET CITY: A young British man is recovering in Wachira Phuket Hospital intensive care unit after being stabbed late on Friday. A motorcycle taxi driver found Aden Simpson, 21, who is a teacher at Satree Phuket School, lying bloody and unconscious at the side of the road near the Mission Hospital at about 5 am on Saturday, hours after the attack.

The motorbike taxi driver rushed him to Wachira Hospital. After emergency treatment he was able to tell police on Saturday evening that he had seen a group of teenagers trying to steal parts from his motorbike. When he remonstrated with them, one of them stabbed him in the abdomen.

A nurse at the hospital, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Gazette that Mr Simpson had lost a great deal of blood from a 1.5-cm-wide wound in his liver.

She said he was out of danger but that supplies of type A- blood are still needed to replace the blood he has lost. Type A- blood is rare in Thailand.

Pol Capt Sathit Noorit, who visited Mr Simpson in hospital, told the Gazette, “We have made no progress in this case because the victim has been too ill to tell us very much, and we could find no clues in the area where he was discovered.”
