Family of man killed in a jet ski accident try to raise 1.6 million baht to fly his body home

The family of Stephen Campbell, 38, from Blackpool in the UK, are trying to raise 1.6 million baht to fly his body home after he was killed in a jet ski accident in Pattaya without full insurance.

Mr. Campbell, a barber shop owner, was on a three week holiday in Thailand with another man from the UK. The ThStephen Campbellai girlfriend of his travel companion told the police that the three of them went to Tawan Beach on Wednesday but only Stephen had rented a jet ski.

The accident occurred on Thursday morning, five days after the men arrived in Pattaya. Mr. Campbell was seen driving the Jet Ski at some speed when he appeared to come off when he hit an anchor rope of a nearby boat. The rope caused a 20cm laceration to his neck and rapid blood loss. The man was taken to the nearest hospital, but medial workers were unable to save him.

Tracey Strangwick, 48, told the Daily Mail newspaper that Mr. Campbell loved Thailand and was a frequent visior, although she said he was not a thrill seeker. She went on to say that he was a wonderful, warm hearted man, and everybody that knows him is in a state of shock that he died in such sudden and tragic circumstances.
