Frenchman plunges to his death taking selfie at Koh Samui waterfall

A Frenchman was found dead at Na Muang 2 waterfall on Koh Samui after he slipped and fell while taking a selfie. 

It was the second death of a tourist under similar circumstances following a fatality involving a Spanish person at the same spot five months ago. 

Rescue teams took three hours to haul the dead body of the 31 year old up from a pool using a rope and harness. 

He had a fatal head injury as well as lacerations to his body. He was taken to Koh Samui hospital yesterday afternoon for autopsy. 

Samitsak – a representative of a tourist help center – told Thai Rath that the French man had come to Thailand to visit a compatriot in Nakhon Sri Thammarat and they had gone on a trip to the island together. 

They had walked up to level four at the waterfall about 800 meters from level 1.

The victim was taking a selfie when he slipped and fell, said Samitsak. 

Thai Rath noted that there are warning signs in the area. 

Five months ago a Spanish person taking a photograph was killed in the same spot.
