His Majesty the King has arranged for a 15-year-old who was injured while lifting weights at her school to be flown to Bangkok for treatment.

Natthathida Suchartpong will on June 4 be flown from Thung Song Hospital in Nakhon Si Thammarat to better-equipped Phramongkutklao Hospital in Bangkok. 

A student at Nakhon Si Thammarat Sports School, Natthathida – known to family and friends as Nong Fa – was attempting to lift a barbell on May 27 when she fell and badly injured her back. 

She underwent surgery at the local hospital, but doctors there give her little chance for a full recovery and suspect she might remain paralysed from the waist down. 

Her mother made a public appeal for further help and the word reached the Palace. 

His Majesty on June 1 assigned Colonel Sorat Samutwanij to visit Natthathida and relay the King’s concern and offer assistance under his patronage. 

Natthathida and her family have expressed deep gratitude the King’s kindliness.
