PHUKET: The 10-year-old girl critically injured in a motorbike accident with her older sister last week died on Monday at Vachira Phuket Hospital after being taken off life support.

“Rattanawadee Tukthin was taken off life support because her brain had been so severely damaged in the crash. Our medical team did their best to save her life, but she remained unresponsive,” said hospital staff.

On April 4, Nong Rattanawadee was returning home from Big C on a motorbike driven by her sister, Anjira Tukthin, 17, when the pair crashed into a utility pole (story here).

Ms Anjira received treatment for wounds on her face and arms, and is recovering.
