The tourist, named as 'Alsahli, Muteb Hail G', 24, suffered head injuries in an ATV accident in the hills behind Soi Klumyang in Chalong yesterday afternoon (Sept 2).

Rescue workers were called to the scene at 4pm and administered first aid for blood coming from his nose and eyes before taking Mr Alsahli to the Accident & Emergency Centre at the still-under-construction-Chalong Hopsital.

Rescue workers later took him to Bangkok Hospital Phuket in Phuket Town at 5:35pm.

Speaking to The Phuket News today (Sept 3), an official from the Tourist Assistance Centre (TAC), who declined to be named, said, “Mr Alsahli’s condition is better but the damage to his tongue is serious as it was almost completely severed.

“He is still recovering at Bangkok Hospital Phuket,” the official said.
