Four men in Phuket miraculously escaped death after a ten wheel water tank rolled out of control down the steep and winding hill from the Peach Hill Resort to Kata Centre yesterday afternoon.

Water tanker ThailandWhen the fully laden tanker that belongs to Yangong Co arrived at the Peach Hill Resort the driver was told that he had gone to the wrong hotel and that the delivery was for the nearby Peach Blossom Resort.

As he hurried down the hill with the tank still fully loaded the driver lost control and the truck rolled, almost flattening a sala opposite the Da Mario restaurant at the bottom of the hill that is a regular haunt of the Kata Centre Tuk Tuk drivers. On this occasion three of them were relaxing in the sala when the rolling tanker smashed through, in what can only be described as a miracle all three men survived, albeit with broken legs.

A fourth man found himself trapped under a coconut tree that was felled by the tanker and one motorbike was completely flattened. It took rescue workers two hours to free the last of the injured from the scene.
