In the early morning of 22nd May 2009 two Ukrainian men were killed at the scene when their motorbike crashed in front of the Big C shopping centre in North Pattaya.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Suppachai Puikeawkum was notified at 6 :00 am and a police and Sawang Boriboon Rescue team were dispatched to the scene of the accident. On Pattaya Second Road in front of Big C police found the bodies of Mr. Matthien Jenkin, aged around 35, who was lying in the middle of the road and Mr. Jonathan Alex Terrence, aged around 25, who was on the footpath. Both men had extensive surface wounds and had received multiple injuries including broken legs, arms and skull. Their clothes were torn and two broken helmets were found nearby. A badly damaged black and orange Honda CBR motorbike, no 151 Chonburi, was found 100 meters away from the bodies.
Police questioned eye witnesses including some motorbike taxi drivers who said the two men were speeding on their bike heading from the Tops supermarket towards the Dolphin Roundabout. They seemed to be drunk and treating the road as a race track. As they were passing Big C the driver lost control and ran into the footpath, hit a road sign, bounced off of another sign in front of Big C and then flew into the air and dropped onto the road, throwing the two men to the ground, and causing them fatal injuries.
The bodies would be kept at Banglamung Hospital for the relevant reports and the embassy and the relatives would be informed.

'After the game, the king and the pawn go into the same box'
For me the most disturbing part isn't the bodies, its the blood smear on the road *shivers*
Who'd be a policeman in Pattaya? Imagine having to deal with this kind of thing every couple of weeks.
Yeah, we saw a guy with half his head missing before lying dead in the street, these two guys seemed to have brought this on themselves well the one driving has I guess.
Jesus is that a mashed up head below the Heineken sign? and on the pavement. i didn't notice that, horrible.

bike wrecks get to me like almost nothing else.
never a dull moment being plod in Pattaya
nor for those press photographers
Sur votre bicyclette, mate.
Nah, they'll have talked about that one in the canteen...
Black humour saves the sanity of those involved in the aftermath of R.T.A.'s and other gory incidents.
As Jon says
'' All the talk of the canteen complete with sick jokes too'', it blots the memory out, it's the safety valve.
'Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media,
which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.'
The Pattaya People newspaper has stated that the tourists were in fact Welsh.
www pattayapeople com (insert the dots)
"Two Welshmen killed in bike accidentIt is sad to report the deaths of two young men, Mr. Alex George (23) and Mr. Matthew Jenkins who were killed ..."
As a paramedic I became immune to gory scenes and emergency situations, You learn to operate as a steady pace and not allow the situation to disrupt or emotionally effect you. The only time I've had a hard time with it is when children are involved. I once ran a call for a child in respiratory distress. That's not a call you want to get so we were amped before arrival and prepared for the worst but when we pulled up and mom ran out with the little blue baby in her arms and shoved it into mine well, it was one of those moments in life that changes you and I had never dreamed about my job before that day.
Follow the three Rís: Respect for self Respect for others and Responsibility for all your actions.
^ yeah, I know what you mean Eric.
Alex George and Matthew Jenkins are hardly Ukrainian names, so I wonder what made them think they were from there? Maybe they mistook Cymru on papers they may have had for Ukraine, or...???
