Aussie victim blamed for his death by Thai parasailing men

Recommended Posts

at 2:28 into the video you clearly see the old guy put his right hand out to grab something ,

he starts falling ,

you clearly see the thai guy try grab and hold him. 

 

in my view the thai operators are to blame, the old guy should not have been able to release himself by any means possible .

the operators are negligent and should be immedietely banned for life,       get hefty prison sentences and pay a very large amount of compensation to this guys family and have his body flown home .

Disagree as much as you like but Thais are irresponsible at their core and if you were not here it would not have happened is a common cultural paradigm here. 

It's also true

Easy to blame a dead victim.

As there was a supposedly eperienced operator up there with him the chance of this happening should have been impossible. Reckless.

Well of course they would, when have you ever heard of a Thai taking responsiblity for anything.

You should know advice given to Thais by farangs is considered as defamation.

And it was lucky he didnt hit the water near a jet ski, or they may have claimed for damage to a jet ski.

and the widow would have had to pay for the repair of the jet ski... As Dogmatix said earlier, do not ever engage in any of these activities in Thailand ever, the risk is just too high!

One very easy way to solve the problem would  plainly be to just keep away from the jetski, parasail, motor boat and other improvised beach entertainment cowboys in Thailand. Simple.

 

Let them go bankrupt and perhaps...perhaps, then they will learn.....but unfortunately, when on holiday, many just don't care and leave their brains and common sense in the airport.

 

RIP to the poor fellow.

Simply share the video and the words of these two criminals at the most.

If you ever come to Thailand never ever trust any kind of activity and attractions. The few the operate regularly and safely pays for the deadly reputation given from those criminals.

May they rot in jail for life. B@$tard$.

That is a saying only found on forums like this.

That's not true. About 16 years ago on a package holiday from the UK in a 4 star hotel in Phuket there was information in the room about hiring cars and they gave the exact same warning about having an accident in a hired car!!!

 

Exactly the same text - "If the farang wasn't here, it would never have happened, so it must be his fault" !

Not 100% of deaths happen by others wrong doing or murders.

Bit of a crazy statement to make on this thread.
