A Korean tourist died after being recovered from heavy surf at Karon beach, on Phuket’s southwwest coast, this afternoon (August 13).
Beach guards reported that Mr Qi and his daughter ignored red “no swimming” flags and entered the dangerous surf, and soon were swept away from the beach by large waves.
Lifeguards on patrol quickly recovered the pair from the heavy surf, but Mr Qi was already conscious.
He was taken to hospital after first-responders administered cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the beach while tourists looked on.
