The Tourist Assistance Foundation donated gave 6,000 baht to British man who needed stitches after a confrontation with a bottle-wielding Thai man.
The foundation’s Kwanchanok Thana presented the money to Aser Ubus, 41, Oct. 7. The payment compensated him for a 5,000 baht hospital bill for five stitches to his ear.
Police said Ubus was hit with an ashtray and alcohol bottle Sept. 21. The victim claimed the attack came out of the blue and he did not know his attacker.
After paying the hospital, Ubus said he didn’t have enough money to check out of his hotel and get back to Suvarnabhumi International Airport to fly home.
While he said he was angry at first, Ubus said the incident will not discourage him from recommending Pattaya to others.
