CHALONG: A Swedish tourist died from head injuries after he rode his motorbike into a gully near the Arcadia Hotel and Resort on Karon Beach. Mr Bo Christer Elisson, 32, was travelling with a companion on another motorbike when the accident occurred at 4 a.m. on February 10. He was not wearing a helmet. Mr Ellison’s companion, who did not give his name, initially refused to allow Mr Christer to be taken to hospital in the back of a police pick-up, saying he wanted to wait for an ambulance. When an ambulance failed to arrive, the companion, who is also Swedish, allowed him to be carried in the back of the pick-up. Mr Ellison died on the way to Wachira General Hospital in Phuket Town.
