The male victim, Adel Samae, whose parents Mahasan Samae and Saowanee Samae also spoke to Mr Adisak at the hospital yesterday said, “Our son is getting better. He is more conscious than before, he can blink his eyes, he can also make move of his left hand and left foot, but his irises are not responding yet due to his medication.
“The right side of his body cannot yet move as doctors had to splice together his broken right arm, right leg and pelvis,” they said.
