Phuket –

  Parents of a two-week-old baby involved in an ongoing hospital dispute filed another report to the Phuket City Police to take legal action against anyone who broke their baby’s arm.

First, our previous story:

The Vachira Phuket hospital yesterday (June 9th) has revealed a possibility of how a two weeks-old baby involved in a viral story on Thai media has broken her arm.

The Vachira Phuket Hospital Director Doctor Weerasak Lorthongkam stated to the press, “We are still continuing our investigation into other possibilities (around how the child broke their arm) while we are providing the best treatment for the baby.”

Now, our updated story:

Today, (June 10th), Mr. Jakkrit Nimnoo and Ms. Aujchara Jantararat, 30, who are the baby’s parents, have filed a report to the Phuket City Police.

Mr. Jakkrit said to the press, “We are worried if our daughter will have an abnormal arm in the future. She was born with everything normal. Now, she has a blemish.”

“We want to know if the hospital can identify who broke our baby’s arm. We feel like the hospital is hiding something and we don’t have confidence in the hospital.”

“We don’t want this incident to happen with other babies. Our case should be the last one. We want the person who broke our baby’s arm to face legal action.”

According to Doctor Weerasak, the investigation into how the incident took place is ongoing.
