KOTA BAHARU – Three members of a Malaysian family who were injured in the bombing incident in Bangkok on Monday, were glad to return home Thursday night.
Tan Rui Hun, 29, his wife Teo Khaei Ling, 27, and mother-in-law Tan Kim Siok, 52, who are from Pasir Mas, arrived at the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport in Pengkalan Chepa here at 11.50pm on a connecting flight from the KL International Airport.
“We are very happy to come home,” Teo told the gathered pressmen.
They had left Bangkok at 5 pm (Thai time) before taking the connecting flight to Kota Baharu.
Rui Hun was on a wheelchair after undergoing four hours of surgery to remove shrapnel from his left hand, shoulder and legs at the Hua Chiew Hospital, Bangkok.
Teo and Kim Siok sustained minor injuries. They then left for their home in Pasir Mas in a car.
The family had gone to Bangkok on Aug 15 for a holiday.
A total of 20 people were killed and 123 others injured in the explosion at the Ratchaprasong junction near the Erawan Shrine and shopping centres of the Thai capital.
