Johnny Boye Frendø from Denmark was hit by a car on Friday when bicycling between Phuket town and Patong beach. One of his friends, Ecco Ravesloot happened to be near and helped the Dane get to Vachira Phuket Hospital and later helped appeal to the international community in Thailand to find blood of the blood type 0 negative.
Vachira Phuket Hospital where Johnny Boye Frendø remains hospitalized, told ScandAsia on Monday afternoon that the 44 year old Dane’s condition remains critical as he is dependent on a respiratory machine to breathe.
The accident caused major internal injuries and bleedings and therefor the Dane still urgently needs blood. Many people in Bangkok have donated blood, but it takes time before it gets to Phuket, his frinds say.
Several have also donated blood in Phuket, but it is not enough and the hospital still incourages people with blood type 0 negative to donate blood. The closer to Phuket the donation is made, the faster it can be received by the Dane. The hospital needs six units (1 unit = 450 ml.) blood.
Close friends of Johnny Boye Frendø says that he is now conscious and can communicate writing with the left hand as his right arm and wrist is broken.
