    Russian spiked in Jomtien

    A Russian tourist was hurt when she stepped on a metal spike laid by a property owner bent on preventing illegal parking.




    Tatiana Kuzina, 33, suffered the accident after exiting her hotel on Jomtien Soi 10 March 7. Paramedics used a cutting tool to free her pierced foot and she was transported to Pattaya Memorial Hospital.
    Witnesses said a property owner had placed metal spikes on a bar in the road to prevent motorbikes and cars from parking there.

    What a relief after reading the headline, at least the poor girls drink wasn't spiked.

    Thailand, an accident waiting to happen. For this poor lady, it already did. Definitely a trip to Pattaya she will never forget.

    When i was a teenager i was spiked in the anus trying to climb a fence. The pain was indescribable. I share the agony of anyone who has suffered the indignity of a spike entering their body

    It must have been awful for you when it pierced your brain.

    Will they be having a dialogue with the property owner about this?

    According to Thai law, the foreigner should not have been walking where she was. Entirely her fault, case closed.

    The lady must file a "civil" suit with the court. This stuff doesn't fall under criminal law.

    Not as handsome as for example pain and suffering in the US but covers hospital and other injury related costs.
