Thai PM General Prayut Chan-o-cha visited Vachira Phuket Hospital to meet some of the Chinese families who have lost their families members in the Phuket boat disaster.

General Prayut arrived at Vachira Phuket Hospital at 2.30pm yesterday (July 9).

The PM was talking to crying Chinese tourists who lost their family members and gave hugs readily whilst offering a sympathetic ear to their stories through interpreters. One Chinese tourist had been travelling with her daughter, son-in-law and grandchild.  The three of them died following the sinking of ‘Phoenix’.

General Prayut also visited some of the patients who were recovering from injuries sustained during the commotion to get off the boat. No media were allowed to follow.

General Prayut also visited the Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation (PPAO) Hospital to visit injured and families of the deceased. General Prayut expressed regret and offered condolences. He also asked doctors and medical staff to provide the highest service for the injured.
