More than a dozen Chiang Mai conventioneers were hospitalized after suffering apparent food poisoning at their Pattaya hotel.
Sawang Boriboon Foundation medics and three ambulances were called to the hotel, which borders Pattaya & Jomtien, June 24 where the 14 adults and children were suffering from vomiting and diarrhea. They were given first aid and transported to Pattaya Memorial Hospital.
One of the victims said the group was part of a delegation of 100 from Niyompanit Co. in Chiang Mai who were in Pattaya to reward sales agents for their work in Lamphun, Sanpatong and Chiang Mai.
Medical staff at Pattaya Memorial Hospital tend to the ill patients from Chiang Mai.
The previous night, to mark the end of the three-day seminar, the park staged a party complete with a seafood buffet, which the victims assumed caused their ailment.
