Severely burned boy transferred to Bangkok

A seven-year-old Russian boy who was severely burned after falling into a hot spring in Mae Hong Son on Oct 4 has been transferred to Bangkok for further medical treatment.

Meanwhile, the Russian Embassy voiced its appreciation in a Facebook post on Tuesday after more than 620,000 baht (RM77,400) was raised by various sources for the boy’s medical expenses.

Misha Ivanov fell into the hot spring while visiting one of the parks in Pai district.

Some 80% of his body was severely scalded by the near-boiling water.

His family rushed him to Pai Hospital before he was sent to Chiang Mai Ram Hospital to undergo three surgeries.

The embassy said in the post that the boy had since been transferred to Chulalongkorn Hospital in the capital to receive further treatment as a special case.

It also praised Soopakij Chearavanont, a former Russian honorary consul in Phuket, who was recently appointed Russian honorary consul in Chiang Mai, for expressing his willingness to bear all costs with regard to Misha’s treatment in Bangkok. — The Nation/ANN
