Kathu, Phuket – An unidentified female foreign tourist from Spain has broken her ankle after she slipped from several rocks while she was reportedly playing on top of the Kathu Waterfall yesterday.

 

Just days earlier, notes the Phuket Express, a Romanian tourist fell to her death at a waterfall in Koh Samui in a separate accident while reportedly taking photos at the edge.

The matter does not seem serious.  Will the medical insurance required for tourists cover the injury?
