Many Thai Facebook users have condemned a Thai man for hitting a western tourist on the head with a bottle and wounding her on Sunday night during the Full Moon Party festival on Koh Pha-ngan, in Surat Thani province.
The clip was shot and posted at noon on Monday by a Facebook user, whose account name is Natthicha Yachana.
It quickly drew more than 8,800 reactions and was shared some 12,000 times.
Natthicha said the incident happened in front of a drug store near Haad Rin Beach, where the Full Moon Party was held.
Then, another man hit the woman on the head with a bottle in order to help the first man, she added.
No identities were given.
Several Thai Facebook users said the incident gave Thailand a bad name, and that the attacker was a man who should not have had attacked a woman.
They said the incident would definitely affect the Kingdom’s tourism.
