Unusual golf cart accident kills two South Korean tourists in Thailand



The two South Korean couples who were vacationing in northern Phitsanulok Province in northern Thailand were on a ferry crossing a river that crossed the course as the Women's Golfcad collided with the men, the AFP reported ,

The crash knocked all four people into the river, and the two women were rescued by nearby fishermen, the agency reported.

The bodies of the two men – Sung Jun-yong (68) and Ha Jae-oong (76) – were later found after more than 50 rescue workers searched the muddy waters.

According to AFP, the villagers found the body of one of the men hovering near a temple more than a mile from the scene of the accident.

"Your women said they both could swim, but I think the reason for the drowning was the strong undercurrent," said Lieutenant Colonel Suwat Suawatmontri.

The couple had come to their holiday on Christmas Eve.

In July, Thailand came under fire from Chinese social media and newspapers after two boats with Chinese tourists capsized off the coast of Phuket, killing more than 40 people.
