Bad singing and karaoke bars naturally go together, but a drunk Sattahip woman apparently was so awful a couple sitting at an adjacent table smashed her in the face with bottles to shut her up.
A bloodied Kosol Ora, 49, called for help after midnight March 10 outside the gates of the Royal Thai Fleet headquarters. She had cuts and bruises across her face and neck, apparently from beer bottles.
Her singing might have been atrocious, but she didn’t deserve this fate.
Sawang Rojthummasathan Foundation medics administered first aid before transferring her to Queen Sirikit Naval Medical Center.
Kosol told police she had been drinking alone at a karaoke joint on Soi Khaomon. After getting drunk, she had picked a microphone and begun to sing. However, she said, the couple at the next table became irritated and started to hit her.
She left on her motorbike and her attackers also fled the scene before police arrived.
