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.

Don't think one has to carry passport anymore everywhere they go.

If it isn't nailed down, and there's a strong chance they'll get away with, you betcha they'll be taking it. And feeling really clever for doing so.

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

Obviously accidents including drowning don't stop for "lunch break"maybe the life guards should adopt a "flexi" lunch system!

Were there no lifeguards on that beach?

I've never seen any lifeguards on Hua Hin beach, in all the times I've been there. If there are any, they're doing a very good job of hiding.

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

The first people I'd check are the Thai folks that were working nearby. I know that sounds terrible, but I'd still check them first.

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.
