Thai media reported that a full two months after a Norwegian tourist was bitten by a shark at Sai Noi beach near Hua Hin there is still no safety net in place.

 

Werner Danielsen, 54, was bitten on the leg on April 15th in a story that made national news.

 

There was initially a flurry of activity and interest with signage and buoys appearing within days as the foreign victim was visited by dozens of well wishers in hospital.

 

The local authority agreed to pay half a million baht from council coffers for a net, reported New TV.

 

But now Wan Chatree of the department of marine and coastal resources Region 4 has had to admit that he has been unable to get his hands on the funds to buy the net.

 

And tourists in the area are still vulnerable to attack.
