Two ziplining tourists hurt after colliding mid-air

/ 07:08 PM July 15, 2015

Two female tourists were injured when they crashed into each other mid-air while taking part in a ziplining tour in Chiang Mai’s Mae On district.

The collision happened when a 27-year-old Chinese tourist swung back in panic, after she reportedly saw bees swarm out of a broken hive on the tree that she was on, and collided with the 57-year-old American tourist behind her. They were 10 meters above ground.

The American woman broke a rib, which punctured her lung, while the Chinese woman suffered serious bruises and was unable to move.


The two women were later transferred to a private hospital in the city and the tour operator said they would cover the expenses.
