German Tourist Rescued After Getting Injured Inside Krabi Cave

Krabi –

A German tourist has been rescued after she sustained injuries inside a cave in Mueang Krabi.

Emergency responders were notified on Tuesday (February 28th) from a local long-tailed boat operator that a 61-year-old female German tourist fell and injured herself inside a cave.

Rescue workers went into the area with the long-tailed boat before climbing up on a ladder in the natural hall inside the cave which is more than ten meters high. The German tourist was put on a rescue board before being removed and taken on a long-tailed boat to a nearby hospital.

A local long-tailed boat operator told the Phuket Express that the tourist along with her husband rented a long-tailed boat to the cave. They were visiting the inside of the cave before she slipped and fell. She was unable to walk.

She was not identified by name by relevant authorities.
