A waitress was killed and her husband seriously injured when a landslide hit a small resort in Trat’s Koh Chang early yesterday.
Naree Khok died in the disaster while her husband Rin was pinned under debris and waited in pain for more than 10 hours before being rescued, due to limited equipment.
The couple worked at Little Chang Resort, a two-storey wooden structure that had eight to 10 rooms.
Many other properties in the same area were also damaged by the landslide.
Meanwhile, three dams on a Rayong golf park burst early yesterday, sending a fierce torrent of water down Mt Thammaros.
The torrent swept away around 100 houses and damaged many other properties.
