Russians injured in hotel fall


A Russian father and daughter were injured when they fell off their hotel balcony in Jomtien Beach.

Maksin Kretova, 43, and 17-year-old Valeriya fell about two meters at the Gallery Hotel and Condominium on Jomtien Soi 8 Jan. 4. The father broke his leg while his daughter dislocated joints on each arm. They were treated at Pattaya Memorial Hospital.

Father and daughter were part of a family of five staying on the second floor of the hotel. Witnesses speculated Valeriya slipped and her father tried to catch her, resulting in both tumbling over the low railing.
