A 12-year-old Russian boy died Thursday from injuries sustained in a Thai tourist ferry disaster, raising the death toll to seven, police said.
The double-decker boat went down on Sunday near the popular coastal resort of Pattaya, around 150 kilometres (100 miles) southeast of Bangkok.
A Polish couple, a man from Hong Kong and three Thai passengers also died.
The Russian boy, who had been in critical condition, died in a hospital in the nearby city of Si Racha on Thursday, Pattaya police commander Colonel Suwarn Chiewnawintawat said by telephone.
