South Korean tourist staying in a condo in the Khao Tao area becomes a victim of shark bite in the Hua Hin. The victim, despite warning signs which forbade swimming, was reported swimming off the Sai Noi beach by the temple of Wat Tham Khao Tao.
The deputy governor of Prajuab Khiri Khan Province Pongpan Vichiensamut confirmed the attack, which wasn’t fatal though.
Since the authorities didn’t want to harm the fishes, have put buoys in place instead of preventing nets.
As reported by Ban Muang, the authorities are planning to ban fishing too as a fisherman landed a 40-50 kilogram bull shark in the area, which can be sold for 2,000 baht each.
The news of the Korean victim came in right after a Norwegian was attacked two weeks ago, as reported earlier.
The local tourism chief has contacted the head of Tourism Authority of Thailand to learn ways to help the tourist.
Reports have also been going around that Werner Danielsen, the Norwegian shark bite victim, 54 was not insured. He has been facing a bill of 300,000 baht bills at Bangkok Hospital in Hua Hin with further expense for follow up procedures and physiotherapy in a hospital in Khon Kaen.
The authority has been extensively slammed by his wife for their incompetency in helping her husband.
