Samui Island –
A German tourist has sustained injuries after she fell down from a waterfall on the Samui Island.
The Samui District Office Chief Mr. Jirapat Choojan told the Phuket Express that the office was notified on Wednesday (April 5th) that a tourist had injured her ankle after falling from the Na Mueang 2 Waterfall.
Emergency responders and officers took more than 20 minutes on foot to walk to the waterfall before finding the injured tourist. The 38-year-old female German tourist was with her German husband (The Phuket Express is withholding their names for their privacy.). The tourist told rescue workers that she slipped when stepping on a rock and was unable to continue walking.
The tourist was moved on a rescue board from the waterfall before being taken to a local hospital.
The German couple told associated Thai media that they appreciated the quick response and help from officers and rescuers.
