Saranyou Hassanai has shared pictures on her Facebook page of a motorcycle incident which caused injuries to two people and prompted positive comments about passers-by, both locals as well as a young western woman, that rushed to help the victims immediately on the busy street.

The two injured were a 60 year old Chinese tourist and a Thai woman who were hit by a motorcycle and were laying, injured, on the street in front of a Muslim restaurant, opposite the Rawai Princess Hotel.

Saranyou explained that the witnesses gathered around to help the injured before the rescue teams and ambulance reached the scene. The western woman was sitting on the hot road with a wet cloth to cool the injured Chinese lady down and keep her calm.

‘The locals and this western woman rushed to help the two injured immediately. I am in admiration; this western woman who sat on the road under the heat and the locals who put on the umbrella for her and the injured.”

“She helped wipe the sweat from the injured woman, helped her with her inhaler and provided companionship whilst waiting for the rescue. I would like to thank her on behalf of Thai people.”

Some would think the foreigner and Thais rushing to help the woman is just something that should happen anyway but, culturally, many Thais don’t like to get involved with these situations fearing the legal system and “bad spirits” from the victims.
