French tourist killed at Namuang waterfall Koh Samui

Yesterday, Monday 31st August, a French tourist was killed at Namuang 2 waterfall in Koh Samui. Early reports suggest the tourist, in his 20’s, had stepped outside a safety barrier, after being asked to return to safety, the man slipped sixty meters sustaining fatal head injuries during his fall. A second French tourist, also in his 20’s,  was transported to the local hospital with multiple broken bones. It took police and rescue workers two hours to reach the men.

In February this year an Australian died and one other was injured in a fall at the waterfall. Benjamin Thomas Kemp, 20 plunged 60 meters down the waterfall with Hugh Smith, 24. Hugh Smith was pronounced dead on arrival at the local hospital.

Despite the dangers of the waterfall, safety barriers, and signs pointing out the dangers visitors to the waterfall continue to risk life and limb climbing areas deemed unsafe.
