Pattaya’s deputy mayor visited a geriatric German injured when he stumbled over a broken bus stop.
Ronakit Ekasingh and officials from the city engineering and tourism offices called on Rolf Paul Boettiger, 80, at the Green Park Resort where he was staying Feb. 23.
Boettiger tripped on the foundation of a bus stop outside La Ferme Restaurant on Naklua Road the day before. He was treated at a nearby hospital for unspecified injuries.
Ronakit apologized and said the bus stop has now been repaired and cones placed at other places in Pattaya that could pose a danger to tourists.
Boettiger was given 20,000 baht for medical expenses from the tourist aid fund. (PCPR)
