A fire erupted and spread quickly throughout the boat and everyone had to jump into the sea. A passing boat rescued everyone and took them to the island of Booloan where they were later picked up by water police and taken to Satun.

There were 18 foreign tourists and 7 Thais on the boat and everyone was now safe.
