Briton survives three days in the jungle after Samui waterfall plunge | News by Samui TimesGerrard Paul Greenhoff, 38, (name transliterated) broke his right leg and could not move. He survived by drinking stream water.

He was only found after a local in Mae Nam saw a motorbike parked near a path leading down to the Khun Sri falls.

Police checked the plate of the bike with rental shops and found it had been rented to the missing man. It still took several hours to locate him in the seldom visited and isolated area.

He was found totally exhausted by a stream. He had eaten nothing for three days.

Medics in the search party immediately put him on a drip as he was carefully carried out of the area via a steep path.

It took more than two hours to bring him up and ferry him to International Koh Samui Hospital.

Doctors said he was in a serious condition but responsive.

Sanook reported that it was lucky that a local had seen his bike or the tourist may have died at the scene.

Though the falls are small the area is not monitored or look after by any officials.
