A Polish tourist who had been missing for several hours after going swimming off the Krabi coast was found by long-tail boatmen floating in the sea. 

 

Artur Wojcicki, 49, was already dead when he was pulled from the sea. 

 

He was taken back to shore and Sanook reported that his wife and a relative burst into tears when they identified their loved one. 

 

He had gone swimming four hours earlier either off Klong Haeng Beach or Nopparat Thara Beach that are adjacent to each other. 

 

He had been swimming one kilometer offshore reported a park official. 

 

He had been staying at a hotel in Ao Nang.

Very bad reporting as usual.nowhere does the original report the polish guy 1km out at sea.he was pulled out of the water 100m from the beach.i also noted that there is no mention of life guards in both cases.i think you've got a better chance of survival swimming in the North Atlantic than a Thai beach.the main attraction of Thailand are the beaches which are left to look after themselves in many cases and can be very dangerous as these two poor souls have found out.
