Tourist Ministry pays out 66,000 baht to Norwegian shark attack victim

 

NewTV reported that the Thai Ministry of Tourism and Sports paid the tourist bitten on the leg by a shark near Hua Hin in April 66,966 baht.

 

Werner Danielsen, 54, received the money with his Thai wife before he flew back to Norway on Sunday.

 

However, due to a problem with his insurance running out the payment still leaves him more than 200,000 short.

 

Three days in a Hua Hin hospital set him back 300,000 baht. 

 

The money came from a Tourism Ministry fund after consideration by a committee.

 

Meanwhile deputy governor of Prajuab Khirikhan Chotnarin Kertsom said that a shark prevention net at the Sai Noi Beach in Khao Tao district would cost 500,000 baht. 

 

Discussions are still ongoing about finally installing that nearly three months after the tourist was bitten on the left leg on April 15th.
