Missing British tourist found injured after three days at Koh Samui waterfall

After being missing for three days, a British tourist was found yesterday with a broken right leg under Khun Si waterfall on Koh Samui.

At 2:30pm yesterday, the Samui tourist police and a rescue team started the search for British tourist Gerrard Paul Greenhoff, 38, after locals reported there was an abandoned Honda motorbike parked near the path leading down to Khun Si waterfall.

Police responded fast—they headed to the bike rental, and checked that the license plate matched with the bike was rented by Greenhoff. Once this was ensured, they sent out a search party, suspecting the tourist was in danger.

When officials arrived, Greenhoff was exhausted from having not eaten for three days.

The rescue team took two hours to bring the injured tourist from the waterfall due to the steep trail. With help from the Thai-International hospital of Samui, Greenhoff received intravenous therapy right away.

Officers assumed that Greenhoff fell from a cliff at Khun Si waterfall, and could not move due to severe injuries. As Khun Si waterfall is desolate and rarely visited by other tourists, no one had found him earlier, Sanook reported.

Greenhoff was transferred to receive further medical treatment.

    “Police respond fast” —Yes in Thai time and after three days. Clearly this man has insurance or he can pay his own hospital bill as there is no way he would be treated if these vultures could not recover the fees for their time and the little they did to triage this man.

      Here you are again drooling the same cr@p about Thai police, disregarding the fact that all of it was triggered by the recklessness of the Brit. The guy went alone in a secluded area and was not careful enough not to go on the edge of a cliff. What do you have to say about his behavior? You are probably raking your brain to find a way to blame his recklessness on a Thai national.
      BTW is jumping/falling off waterfalls the new trend for POMs?
      That said I am happy they found him alive and hope he will recover soon.

        How do you know his ‘fall’ was not assisted by a rice farmers daughter?

          “Greenhoff was exhausted from having not eaten for three days.” So I assume he was conscious and if he had been pushed by anybody I guess he would have said so…

          • Ken Anderson

            As stated by yourself you are assuming, as indeed am I, my post was in the form of a question.
            However in my years of experience in this wasteland, in such circumstances if you assume the worst it is usually not too far from the reality.

          • Guest

            On what do you base your asumption?

          • Ken Anderson

            I explained that in my previous post.
            Maybe you could consider reading and understanding prior to commenting.

            Ken, block him. It’ll be so funny when nobody is on here for him to try to wind up.

      Got there fast hoping to be the first to his pockets.

    ”Police responded fast—they headed to the bike rental, and checked that the license plate matched with the bike was rented by Greenhoff”.

    I bet they also checked his driving licence, whether he had been wearing a helmet, and his immigration status, etc etc. Feigning concern when in reality they were only looking for extortion opportunity.

    Oh come on were is the story line ( was he pushed or did he jump)

  • fake news

    Missing British tourist, having an IQ of 170, found down and out after being outwitted by an RFD with an IQ of 40.

    • fake news

      Once again this trannie bit*ch cowardly signs out and pretend he is someone else then writes a post and up votes it. Glad you can find joy in another man’s pain and this is what he complains about daily when others do it to the Thais. How is he any better than the idiots he criticize Never has there been a gay man as childish and petty as the guest. yes you must have many friends and such a great life to have to stoop this low.

      • Guest

        Nope I did not post it… believe what you want I don’t give a f… To prove you that I am not a bad dude and don’t hold a grudge I will give you an upvote, feeling better? But you seem agitated, you should relax a bit

        • fake news

          what is it with you and these up votes crap? you mention them in so many posts like if they have any value. I think this one is a clear sign of your guilt. If nothing else is true here this is true, you posted that cheap shot and you up voted it. you are a fvcking liar for denying it you coward. no one is more agitated here than you so you relax and try to play well with others but that post shows your make up and how petty and childish you are.

          • Brendan’s Boys

            BLOCK HIM. Now that I found out how to do it, I am amazed by those who still read hid drivel. And it is drivel.

          • Guest is Mouse

            I am just trying to give you POMs back what you give the Thais

      Lucky guy, so the new trend this week for flying poms is from Waterfalls, i wonder what it will be next week, there is A View Talay Swallow dive due at any time.
      The guy was very lucking to survive, 3 days without food and water plus dehydration is 100% deadly, but he obviously had enough to drink, he was knocking on Heavens door! a close call.

    • Ken Anderson

      For sure you have the correct name ”fake news”.
      I will be most surprised if you can find a rice farmers daughter who is that intelligent.

      Some men will lose whatever little wit they had when some gorgeous little piece
      sets her guile to work on them.

    • The Groover

      Despite what imbeciles like you and the entire Arab and Indian population may think, one does not have to be ‘smart’ to con the vulnerable. One just needs a complete absence of morality and to lack any trace of humanity. Most RFD’s fit this profile perfectly.

      • Guest

        Why are you retorting to name-calling the Drooler? Have you been conned by a RFD yourself?

    What’s going on? a Thai found an ‘abandoned’bike and reported it to the Police? this alone strikes me as against the grain, a Thai with a social conscience?what happened to ‘finders keepers’ ?

  • Ricksanchez

    This is a gem in an otherwise rising dung pile. Glad they found the guy if it was too late people would’ve been crying MURDER!!!

    • Charles Baht Esquire.
