A young American tourist who fell to his death at a remote Koh Samui waterfall died because he insulted the spirits of the area, locals told Thai media.
Police and foundation rescue staff had to trek three kilometers on foot to reach the victim and other tourists. They were in a steep and rocky area not officially opened for tourism due to its inaccessibility.
Locals told Daily News that the tourist had probably insulted the spirit of the land in the area.
They said that there was a shrine for “Phor Puu” in the area and there had been cases in the past of tourists urinating where they shouldn’t and this had led to accidents.
They said that there had been two tourist deaths and three injuries before this latest incident and an insult was the likely cause of death.
