@ Nasa123, I agree with you that the Russian parents of the young kids should have arranged a sufficient travel insurance.
But we can not blame the Russian kids to occupy hospital beds in Thailand.
I not understand your saying: "Take care of your people".

The 2 kids were hit by a thai bus which drove/running through a red traffic light!
If the thai bus respected the thai traffic laws, then the 2 Russian kids were now not in a thai hospital.
Regardless with or without insurance.

I guess that family ,thai and Russian officials  file charges against the bus driver, and go to claim all financial matters ( hospital bills, extra hotel and ticket expenses).

Is the bus driver arrested?

I wish both teenagers a speedy and complete recovery.

According the article the bus hitting them was running a red light!
Bus driver arrested?
I miss info about the bus driver, bus company/insurance paying the medical bills of the teenagers.

I am very sorry for these young 2 people, but where is travel insurance ??, these two are 16 and under. This it`s are problem for the parents they don`t pay fore the insurance. Here in Phuket in Whatshira Hospital it`s so many Russian people whit now  insurance, And this take the bed from Thai People it`s a BIG sham from Russia, Take care off your people.
And Account number should and must be to the hospital is not private Account.
