The Spanish cyclist who disappeared from Yangon General Hospital while seeking medical treatment for multiple slashes has been found at Sakura Hospital, according to the police.
“He seemed to be seeking treatment at Sakura without getting permission from Yangon General. We still don’t know how he left Yangon General. We believe he chose the hospital that he thought was the best. He is still at Sakura,” Lt-Colonel Win Kyi from the Yangon West District Police Force said.
While cycling from Bago to Yangon, the man, identified only as Carlos, 31, was attacked by two unknown men on the highway near Bago on Monday night. He sustained 13 wounds and was taken first to Bago Hospital before being transferred to Yangon General the next day.
The cyclist has been touring across Turkey, China, Mongolia, Yunnan, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand and Kawkareik, Myawady, Hpa-An and Mawlamyaing in Myanmar.
Police say hospitalised Spanish tourist is missing
A Spanish tourist receiving treatment at Yangon General Hospital after sustaining multiple slash wounds this week was found missing on Tuesday night, according to Yangon West District Police Force.
“We have yet to know whether the Spanish tourist is missing or has fled after arriving at the Yangon hospital. We are investigating this in cooperation with authorities concerned. As we don’t have the Spanish embassy here (in Myanmar), we are trying to contact him via the consulates,” Police Lt-Colonel Win Kyi from the Yangon West District Police Force told The Daily Eleven on Thursday.
Carlos, 31, was attacked by two unknown men while on a bike ride at Mile Post No.43/1 on the old Yangon-Mandalay Highway at the exit of Bago Region at about 10 p.m. on Monday. He was taken to a field and attacked by unknown men using an iron rod and a sword. His backpack, money and bike were also reportedly stolen by the attackers.
The Spanish tourist who sustained 13 slash wounds was sent to Bago People’s Hospital and later transferred to Yangon General Hospital.
