Two young Russian children Daniel Mokshantsev 16 & his sister Katia suffered terrible injuries after being hit by a bus on Sukhumvit Road.
Witnesses say the bus full of Chinese tourists and driven by 56 year old Rot Bothaisong from Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens, appeared to go through a red light giving the Russian children no chance.
An appeal has been set up to try and help their father (who is raising them alone) with the massive hospital bills. The terrible injuries include craniocerebral injuris and brain haemorrhaging as well as extensive bruising.
The appeal says that their father is bringing them up alone and massive bills are expected at the hospital where they are being treated.
Many concerned Thai people rushed to the scene to administer whatever help they could before the two children were rushed to Wat Yansangwaram hospital.
The children were in fact wearing safety helmets however sadly that still did not prevent these life threatening injuries.
Hopefully people will respond to the appeal to help this unfortunate Russian family in their hour of distress.
This is just another tragedy similar to what we see every day in Thailand.
