Phuket Vice Governor Prakob Wongmaneerung led the entourage to Bangkok Hospital Phuket in Phuket Town to visit Anna Timofeeva, 45, who suffered multiple broken bones, including arm and ribs, in the accident.

Ms Timofeeva was staying at the Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket resort in Cherng Talay with her partner Aleksey Kharkov, 45, while on holiday in Phuket, reported the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department of Thailand.

The couple rented a motorbike had an accident in the nearby Nakkerd Hills at 3:30pm on Sunday.

The couple were brought to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

Mr Kharkov has suffered spinal injuries and remains in the intensive-care unit (ICU), while Ms Timofeeva suffered a broken arm and several broken ribs.

Both require multiple surgeries reported the PR Dept.

Mr Kharkov said that he could not remember all the details of the accident, just that he lost control of the motorbike on a steep slope in the hills.

The painkillers he has been administered have not helped his memory, he said.

The PR Dept reported that Russian couple have yet to be able to involve their insurance company for post-accident assistance, and that the Russian consul has been unable to contact their son in Moscow due to the long holiday.

The report noted that the visit today was to highlight that Phuket officials care about what happen to tourists during the holiday in Phuket.

* The accident occurred on Sunday, Dec 31, not Saturday, Dec 30 as originally reported. The error is regretted

Sometimes I think that high ranking Provincial officials and high ranking police officers ( police station photo safaris, the whole Phuket island police top brass on a Sunday morning stands around 1 suspect), need these photos for their career CV, for future promotions.

The story is not telling or the thai motorbike rental shop rented the motorbike out to a tourist holding a valid driving licen...

Oh Gosh...all those nice officials, so heart-warming...Thanks for reminding us that Thailand REALLY cares about tourists..This picture almost brings me to tears.  I'm just wondering, does the Governor's office force PN to meet them at the hospital to cover these pathetic promo shoots?  I think they should have had the patient pointing at the Vice Governor, with everyone else pointing at th...

Disgusting picture. No way if I was lying in that would I want to be used for promotion of officials. Certainly not for publication. It seems Thailand has a 'thing' about pics of injured people judging by the many photos of people lying in their blood under motorbikes, etc

25000 Bath on ICU in Bangkok hospital every day +++++ Hope you have money, And this people rent out motorbike MOST se the renter have a driver lisens to drive in Thailand. The Police give only a ticket if they don't have the license and pay 500 Bath and the and drive away and the accident 5 minutt later, so the Police and the shop have wrong and most pay the bill in hospitale ?
