A day out on a rented motorcycle turned to horror for two female foreign tourists in Kanchanaburi in Thailand's west. 

 

The driver didn't notice hanging cables on the road by the PTT gas station in Koh Samrong sub-district of Muang district. 

 

Miss Christina from Spain suffered severe injuries to her neck.

 

Miss Ana Clara from Argentina who was riding pillion suffered road rash and dizziness inducing vomiting. 

 

Both were rushed to hospital.

Thai media reported they had rented a motorcycle and were on a trip out to enjoy the natural surroundings. 

 

The story made the Channel 7 national TV news this morning.

 

The tourist police are trying to trace the company responsible for the cables to take responsibility for the accident.

Tourists renting a motorbike probably never ridden before and I expect no insurance.

What  has  tourists renting a motorbike got to do with low hanging electric cables ?

I agree the cables should not be hanging down as they are dangerous .... as witnessed,  however,  I am just saying that tourists come here with zero experience riding a motorbike and as such need to be aware of the inherent dangers within Thailand and on the roads. We see low hanging cables everywhere over Thailand.

Lets hope the cables are relocated higher by the offending party.

Do we need another poll on the incompetence of Thai agencies to determine if the authorities responsible are incompetent?

 

lol... about as much as we needed a poll to determine if air pollution regulators are incompetent... or agencies responsible for police... or agencies responsible for <insert option>

I doubt they were the first motorcyclists to ride past. Why didn't any locals run into them?

I know they do ocasionally but... 

 

Oh and a snare is a device with a loop in it.
