It happened at a vacant plot of land where the owner had put the spikes in concrete to stop parking.

Medics were called who found Tatania screaming in agony. The metal had entered her foot between the little toe and the next toe on her right foot.

A cutting tool was used to free her before she was taken to Pattaya Memorial to have surgeons finish the job.

Locals told Daily News that they had seen the tourist out for a walk in the area when the accident occurred.

    Many Russians are ‘clumsy’ and they are not used to wearing flip-flops.

    the landlord probably didnt expose a warning. in homeland he would be sued for imprudence

      May have had a warning in the Thai script…


      Don’t see a legal requirement to have any warning in Russian, English or other language. It is Thailand. Anyway when in Pattaya always look forward, backward, left, right, up and down.
