It is common, many cannot swim and they do not understand that they can be out of their depth and helpless quite suddenly. I think Indians too are likely candidates. I don't think there are any emergency life-rings or floating devices anywhere on the beach either. 

If they're lucky there a large pieces of styrofoam left by the fishermen...

Remember Pattaya Beach has recently been extended and raised with a lot of sand. There must be a shelf out there.

"Thank you... Thank you... No thank you?"  he is reminding them, and girlfriends, to at least say THANK YOU for saving their lives (instead filming with smartphone)

While I fully respect and admire the Croatian gentleman, I figure it’s an Asian thing about not having any degree of manners ( except the civilised and well mannered Japanese people ) They should have drowned then this incident would’ve been all over the news, especially the Chinese’s..

Then surely the Thais would be giving away elite visas free to all Chinese people !

Lifeguards would be a great idea,  oh yes, there are lifeguards on jomtien beach,  if you take a look between soi 6 and soi 7 you will find all 8-10 of them sitting together, in the shade of the tree looking at their smart phones.   

Ditto on Pattaya beach. Sat under a shelter opposite Soi 6. They only venture out to shop for food. No patrols.

Heh, this guy is my friend - his name is Siniša, and in Pula Rock City we all call him "Šime". He's a great guy who runs a great restaurant near my house.
Here at the Croatian Adriatic where we live, modesty is a normal thing because every year there are quite numeruous cases of saving lives at sea. An excerpt from this 'Pula Travel Guide' can give you a good idea why it happens:

"Do yourself a favor and throw a glance 10 meters left and right before you enter the water in the wrong place. Before you jump from the rocks, first enter the water slowly like a retiree and check how deep it is. Since every beachrock is a much harder than your head, don't ignore common sense even when the waves are small. Although the truth is that waves are always coming in the certain rythm and there's a short pause every few minutes - in case of medium and especially big waves, do not imitate inexperienced Tarzans or local individuals who know exactly what they're doing in the rough sea. In emergency cases, remember that swimming (distanced at least 10-15 meters from the coast) a few minutes to the nearest bay/cove is the best way to survive, for both you and your eventual savior(s)."
