Two men die in Thailand after their golf cart is accidentally pushed into river
Two South Korean men died Tuesday after their golf cart was accidentally pushed into a river in Thailand by the cart carrying their wives.
The two couples, who were on vacation, were riding a ferry across a river that cuts through a golf course in northern Thailand, in the province of Phitsanulok, according to CNN. While on the ferry, the women's golf cart collided with the men's, the AFP news agency reported.
All four people landed in the river following the crash. Nearby fishermen rescued the two women, but Sung Jun-yong, 68, and Ha Jae-oong, 76, did not survive.
"Their wives said both are able to swim, but I think the cause of drowning was the strong undercurrent," district police Lieutenant Colonel Suwat Suawatmontri told AFP.
Police told CNN that the bodies of the men were located in the Nan River.
The couples had arrived for their vacation on Monday.
