The family of a man who died in a horror jet-ski accident in Thailand said they have had to endure a “torturous” four-month wait to hold his funeral.

 

George McKechnie, 45, formerly of Fintry in Dundee and most recently of Kirkcaldy, was on holiday in the Pattaya region of the country when he suffered fatal head injuries in the incident on June 3.

 

His mum Sheila, 64, from Kirkcaldy, said that due to a major delay in getting police and autopsy reports back from Thailand, the family were only now preparing to lay George to rest.

 

She said: “This has been torturous for us, a torment. We have tried everything to get the reports released to us but it has taken until now.
