Pattaya, the 15th of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 11:00am on Friday, Sawang Boriboon Foundation rescue workers in cooperation with the Marine Rescue services assisted in the treatment and transportation of an injured man from Koh Larn in the Pattaya Bay. The man was suffering from chest injuries, the result of an unknown jetski explosion.

At the scene, the Bali Hai Pier in South Pattaya, the injured man, now known to be Mr. Srithon Wongruen [23], was transported to the Banglamung Hosptial for immediate treatment.

Investigations revealed that the man was inadvertently injured whilst starting the engine of his jetski. Reportedly, he had been in the process of readying the equipment for tourist hire, off the coast of Koh Larn, when the accident occurred.

Witnesses at the scene reported a small explosion whilst the jetski was being started which caused Mr. Wongruen to cry out in pain.

At present, it is thought that an electrical fault in conjunction with a possible fuel leak may be responsible for the accident. Marine Rescue services singled out poor maintenance as the overriding issue in the incident.
