As tourist drowns someone steals rescuer's wallet left on Hua Hin beach

Reports are coming in of the death of a tourist from drowning near Soi 69 at Hua Hin beach. 

 

But after another foreign tourist tried to save the other tourist someone stole his wallet that he had left on the beach. 

 

A video taken around 1 pm showed a group of concerned foreigners around the stricken man with one giving CPR. Mention was also made of the man's wife. 

 

An ambulance had been called but had not yet arrived.

 

A post on the "Hua Hin Expats" page on Facebook said there were good and bad people about. 

 

The wallet contains important documents and Hua Hin police area aware of the incident. 

 

The tourist reportedly died though we have no more details at present.

Didn't trust the hotels safety box? But in any case, one has to bring the passport, even to the beach, though risk of getting stolen or ruined.

Commiserations to the good Samaritan, he was probably too busy doing the right thing to think about his belongings.
Hope the thief buys him/herself a slap up meal and chokes on it.

Were there no lifeguards on that beach?

The report says it was about 1pm so they were probably on their lunch break.

What a foul, abject parasite.
  The ignominy does not have empathy.
Sad for the deceased, and hope that the rescuer quickly finds his wallet.

Having spent a week at beautiful Hua Hin, I can't say as I recall any life guards.

I have never seen one, but that does not mean there is not one.
I go very early to the beach.

Ao manao in Prachuap has lifeguards !!

Thats the plus side

 

the minus is they are fully dressed in army/ air force gear with the addition of wearing a full lifejacket

As unlucky conscripts who probably cant swim They avoid both sun and certainly water

You do not have to carry your passport, this has been covered on this forum dozens of times. 

R.I.P. to the deceased, and I hope the good Samaritan recovers his belongings, though doubtful.
