chelseafan Posted June 12, 2015 Report Share Posted June 12, 2015 A YOUNG British woman almost lost her leg when she was struck by a motorboat propeller while scuba diving off the coast of Thailand. Alice Davies, 20, had the horror accident near the holiday island of Koh Tao, police said. Witnesses said Miss Davies suffered severe blood loss and two broken bones when the vessel hit her while reversing. They told investigators the Briton was swimming back to shore with her party after completing a diving course. She has been taken to Thai International Hospital on nearby Koh Samui, where medical staff say she is recovering well. Police have traced the boatâ€™s driver and are considering bringing criminal charges against him. Foreign Office staff have also been notified and have offered Miss Daviesâ€™ family, from Southampton, consular assistance. Lieutenant Colonel Napha Senathip, of Koh Tao police, said his officers were waiting to interview Miss Davies. â€œWe are waiting to speak to the tourist and receive medical records about her injuries. â€œNevertheless, the driver confessed to the crime, and he is willing to compensate the victim because his boat has accident insurance.â€ The accident happened on Tuesday evening while Miss Davies was holidaying with friends on the island famous for scuba diving. She was taken to Thai International Hospital on nearby Koh Samui, where doctors say she is in a stable condition.
