PHUKET:-- Police have confirmed that the boat captain, his boat crewmen assistant and the tour guide present when a Chinese tourist had her legs slashed by a tour speedboat propeller at Phi Phi Island on Saturday (Dec 1) have been charged and are currently in detention.

 

The tourist, 39-year-old Jang Sia Dan, suffered deep lacerations to both legs, with the her leg slashed to the bone, as she got off the back of the boat while it was reversing to moor at Pileh Bay.

 

She was rushed to Phi Phi Hospital for emergency treatment, then sped back to Phuket for extensive treatment at Vachira Hospital Phuket in Phuket Town.

Sounds a bit silly that the TG was/is being charged, unless they've (captain and crew) said safety information given by the captain wasn't passed on.

Before a group of stupid Chinese tourists enter the boat in the first place they should get instructions by the tour guide about what to do and what not to do.

 

Very simple really , when the engines are switched on , do not jump .

The tourguide is looking after the well being of the guests, so that was clearly a fail.

Also apparently the tourguide was illegal, so easy to blame and charge.

While on the boat the captain and crew are the ones in charge, the tour guide should only be passing information given, but agreed on the illegal easy target bit.

Not on the water. There is a special class, yellow class tourguides, and they are supposed to do much more than the standard land tourguide.

Fair enough but they're still the lowest on the totem while on a vessel at sea...Captain, crew, guide.

Apply's to any sea going vessel.
