How about "Pedestrian dragged under tour bus in South Pattaya" instead of "Foreign pedestrian dragged under Chinese tour bus in South Pattaya"?

 

Does the nationality of the people in the bus really matter?

And does it matter if the pedestrian was foreign or Thai?

 

 

it sure does, the Chinese were supposed to be going up north of BKK and this happen south of BKK 555

proud member of the thai driving public, didnt see and didnt feel the impact; more no-look thai driving

Whilst I will never condone the severity of this incident, I really think too many people jump straight in with comments such as, yours.

If you have ever driven any large vehicle, you will know that the " feel " of them is nothing like a car,and a bump or jolt is usually a pothole or bump in the road (of which Thailand is the World leader ).  

Just  saying

Be nice if someone could retrieve the amputated arm which seems to be lying in the road in that photo...

You are absolutely correct.

Reading many posts herein it implies that the Thai drivers knock down only tourists! If so... could it be that the tourists are to blame?

I sincerely hope this injured person will recover soon.

"Chinese tour bus", I pretty sure it's not legally owned by a Chinese company or Chinese person, but was driven by a Thai. So calling it a Thai tour bus would be accurate. Oh, wait, maybe the bus was manufactured in China.

Unbelievable that any driver would not be aware of a pedestrian being dragged by his vehicle.

Brain dead bugger should not be on the road.

You obviously don't drive. Today's suspensions are so good, that you can drive with a flat and not notice it. The roads are so bad particularly around the drains that no bumps would create more alarm. Especially pattaya tai .

Ive always been wary of bus and truck drivers, as they're likely high on caffeine drinks or worse.

It’s called ‘human interest’, mate. It adds colour to the story. Most readers are interested in the additional information.

 

The UK’s Daily Mail goes one step further and does a check on zoopla so that it can tell its readers how much your house is worth too 😱

Only the PC Brigade is try to Homogenize everyone. People are different, get over it. I could think of a lot more descriptive words than Foreign & Chinese, but if I write them here, my post would be swiftly deleted.

 

PC is DOA in Asia.

Yes, but what about the pedestrian's eyesight? Couldn't he see the bus? Was he trying to cross the road, or just walking on it, the article doesn't say anything about it?

 

PS. I'm not trying to blame the victim.

 

Probably walking on pavement with back to traffic, stepped into road without thinking to avoid some inevitable obstruction....foodseller, garbage bin, beggar, hole, whatever.  You constantly have to step into the road when walking on appalling footpaths here and sometimes just forget to look first as you don't anticipate a speeding lunatic driving in the gutter.
