A photo has emerged of the young Englishman that accidentally fell from a moving train on Friday as it was going to Surat Thani from Bangkok.

Just the day before the accident, Daniel Clarke, 21, posted a photo of himself on Facebook clowning around and hanging out of a Thai train. It was a grim foreshadowing of  the accident that awaited him.

Thankfully, he is recovering at Chumphon Khet Udomsakdi Hospital after being found in a coma. According to The Sun, the young man’s doctor, Sanchai Nakaphan, said that he did not sustain permanent brain damage in the fall. The injuries he sustained, mostly to the head and leg, he should be able to fully recover from.
