Maj Suphat Hemjinda from Krabi City Police was called at 11:30am and told that 33-year-old Kreetha Sarawaree had fallen from a speedboat as he attempted to push another boat out of the way so the boat could be moored. He was hit by the propeller after falling into the water.
“Mr Sarawaree suffered a large slashed wound on his back and was immediately taken to Krabi Hospital,” Jampen Phompakdee, Koh Hong Park Chief told police.
Maj Suphat explained that Mr Kreetha was a crew member of a speedboat named Ao Nang Photo. The boat had dropped off tourist at Koh Lao La Ding and was waiting at the pier. Another speedboat, Srisawat, was attempting to moor at the pier but it was too crowded.
Mr Sarawaree went to the back of his boat and tried to push another boat away so there was room for the Srisawat to moor but he fell into the water and was hit by the engine propeller of the Srisawat .
The captain of the Srisawat, 25-year-old Anan Phanya, told police that as soon as he know what had happened he stopped his engine, help pulled the victim up and reported the incident to park officials.
“Mr Phanya was taken to the police station for questioning, but no charges have been filed against him yet.
“We have been told that representatives from the Phi Phi Tour who operate the Srisawat have been to visit Mr Kreetha at Krabi Hospital and are taking care of his medical bills,” Maj Suphat said.
