The elderly British couple badly beaten up by four Thai men in Hua Hin on Songkran day left Thailand for home in Britain on Tuesday.
Before the couple’s departure, Mrs Rosemary Owen said her family would like to thank all who took good care of them while they were being treated at the Bangkok hospital in Hua Hin.
However, she admitted that it was difficult for her to forget the incident. She said that she was afraid and felt stressed during her encounter with the four suspected assailants at the Hua Hin provincial court on Monday.
The couple and their son were badly beaten up until they went unconscious in a lane thronged by hundreds of locals and foreign tourists after their son accidentally bumped on one of the alleged assailants.
Mrs Lisa Oengheng, president of Tourism Business Association of Hua Hin and Cha-am, bid farewell to the couple at the Suvarnabhumi international airport.
She admitted that the Hua Hin incident had badly affected Thailand’s image in the eyes of foreign tourists.
Mrs Lisa said that the couple would like to thank a lei-selling boy who launched a campaign to raise fund to pay for the medical bills for the couple by selling his leis. But so far the boy has not been located, she added.Facebook.
