Luckily for the tourists, who were mostly Thai, the boat started sinking just 2 kilometers offshore near the island of Koh Phra.

A fishing boat came to the rescue and managed to ferry all the people to the shore at Chumporn.

The vessel concerned was the 21 ton Raja Chumporn that developed a large hole under the waterline.
