A Russian tourist bit off a British woman’s finger during a fight on a beach in Thailand

During a fight on the beach of a popular resort in Thailand, a Russian tourist became angry with a British traveler and bit off her finger. The conflict erupted over a beach chair. The Daily Mail reported the details.

The incident happened on the famous party island of Koh Phangan last Saturday, but it only became known about it now. 42-year-old Briton Angelina and 32-year-old Russian Varvara argued about whether the Englishwoman could use a free soft pouf on the beach. At one point, the inadequate Russian woman grabbed her opponent’s hand and bit off the tip of her middle finger.

It is known that Angelina’s 39-year-old friend, former German fencer Monika Sozanska, was with her at the time and watched the development of events. According to the German, the drama that unfolded before her eyes reminded “something from a horror movie”, although nothing foreshadowed disaster. Female tourists came to a Thai beach and decided to take a beanbag chair that was lying next to a couple of tourists to relax.

Sozanska, a participant in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, told the Bild newspaper: “It was on a Saturday at 1:30 p.m. when Angelina’s dog and I were looking for a place at Koh Raham Beach Club to taste a fresh coconut. Then we noticed an empty pillow next to a young couple.”

The situation escalated when the Russian woman refused the British woman’s request to take beach equipment. Angelina was allowed to take it with her only after the waiter intervened. The situation enraged the Russian so much that she lashed out at her opponent and her dog before the Briton could realize and fight back. “Angelina hit her on the forehead. The woman disappeared for a short time but returned even angrier. She grabbed Angelina’s hand and bit it. Then she spat out the bitten part of the phalanx and smiled. Blood splattered. It was like something from a horror movie,” the German tourist recalled with horror.

As the German woman tried to dig her fingertip out of the sand and comfort her petrified friend, the Russian woman and her unnamed companion tried to escape. However, the police patrolling nearby detained them. The Russian woman only had a copy of her passport, so the police let her into the hotel with the original. However, the Russians fled by plane to neighboring Malaysia.

At the same time, the British woman was rushed to a hospital on the nearby island of Samui but was soon taken home to the UK for replantation surgery. “Now doctors are trying to save the finger and avoid amputation using a special procedure called wrapping,” said the eyewitness and her friend.

Commenting, dental professor Florian Boyer, 48, of the Charité University Clinic in Berlin, explained that unlike the back teeth, which have great strength, the front teeth are not designed for such “feats”. “Our teeth are not designed for such loads,” he said. In this regard, the expert suspected that biting off the tip of the finger was probably painful for the Russian woman as well.

The Russian woman’s whereabouts are currently unknown.
