Three Chinese tourists were plucked from the sea off Ko Chang Island by rescue workers after they were caught by rip current while swimming in the sea off Sai Khao beach on Wednesday afternoon in defiance of a no-swimming sign.


One of the tourists, whose identity  is not immediately known was reported to be in serious condition and was rushed to a clinic on the island for emergency treatment.  He was later declared to be out of danger.


Employees of a hotel spotted the three Chinese tourists struggling in the sea as they appeared to be drowning and immediately alerted the Ko Chang municipal office for help.

I was there Tuesday morning, and the seas were fairly calm - unless they picked up markedly overnight, it shows how easy it is for poor swimmers to get into difficulty.
