PHUKET: -- An Australian man who passed out drunk during his flight to Phuket was carried off the plane still unconscious on arrival yesterday and rushed to Thalang Hospital.

The man, named by police as Christopher Lazarus Boubis, 39, later regained consciousness in the emergency ward at the hospital, but immediately went on a rampage through the facility.

“He was shouting and verbally abusing staff, scaring them, before he collapsed again unconscious in an emergency treatment room,” a nurse told the Phuket Gazette.

One nurse said that as Mr Boubis woke, he seemed dazed and confused.

“He even groped one of the female staff,” she said.

Officers from the Thalang Police arrived soon after to take Mr Boubis into custody.

“The man’s flight landed at about 9pm last night. We brought him to Thalang Police Station as soon as doctors said it was safe to do so,” Lt Chatree Chuwichian explained.

Mr Boubis was later released.

“He was escorted by police to his hotel in Patong,” Lt Chatree said. “No charges were brought against him as no complaints were filed against him and there was no damage to any property.”

However, Lt Chatree urged tourists to be more responsible while on holiday.

“We understand people come here to have a good time, but please be careful about how much alcohol you drink. If you get too drunk, you could easily harm yourself or others,” he said.

Another quality tourist arrives. sad.png

Please don't be too hard on him. At least your country could get rid off a lot of them by sending them away in a ship.

he must have some medical condition - passing out twice is not what you do after a moderate drinking on the plane

Yep, it's called Braindislaxative...............thumbsup.gif

This guy on the photo is really "down to earth" and it seems that the nurse is kicking his kangaroo bud.thumbsup.gif

P.S. For those who're asking where his bodies/mates were. Please see one of them....
