Thai authorities recover bodies of Korean golf tourists

BANGKOK (AP) — Authorities in northern Thailand have recovered the bodies of two South Korean tourists who disappeared when the golf cart they were riding fell into a river on Tuesday.

Phitsanulok province Governor Pipat Ekpapan announced that the body of 68-year-old Jun Yong Sung was found Thursday morning after that of 76-year-old Jaseoong Ha was discovered the night before.

He said the pair fell into the Nan river in their golf cart from a pier when another cart hit them from behind, dumping them and the cart into the water. They were at a resort with a golf course that has a river running through it which must be ferried across.

One of the victim's wives, Ok Su Kim, was also hurt in the accident.
