RIP to Herr Eberhart and condolences to his family.  78 and still swimming in the morning: not a bad innings. I hope I manage to do as well.

Are there any lifeguards now on the beaches in Phuket?

Are you kidding or what ? Take into consideration that not only most Thais can’t swim due to their constant attention to FB and other BS like that 🙄 

They would need extensive training away from their phones before drawing themselves 😄
