Hospital patients run for cover as storm tears through waiting room in Thailand

This is the terrifying moment patients run for cover as a storm tears through a hospital waiting room.

CCTV footage shows locals waiting for treatment when heavy wind and rain suddenly appeared outside on May 22.

The tropical storm whipped through the building causing a picture of the Thai king to be blown from the wall as hospital beds were flung across the floor.

While outside the building, wheelchairs were blown away as rain lashed the Ban Bueng Hospital in Chonburi, eastern Thailand.

The weather was the strongest tropical storm to hit the region this year with more than 80 houses damaged and many trees and electric poles were collapsed within two hours.

Surasit Worawitkit, the mayor of Ban Bueng subdistrict, ordered the rescue foundation to provide immediate help to the locals.

He said: "Officers removed trees that fell over near houses and blocked the roads.

We also provided food, water, and temporary spaces for the citizens to stay and rest."
