Spanish tourist dies in plunge from waterfall on Koh Samui

A male Spanish tourist is believed to have accidentally fallen to his death as he attempted to descend from a waterfall on Samui Island in Thailand’s southern province of Surat Thani on Saturday.

 

The victim, 26-year old David Alejandro Rocamudi Conesa, reportedly became separated from a group of his friends as they were exploring the Na Muang 2 waterfall. However, after they returned to their hotel and, as he had not returned by nightfall, David’s friends asked the hotel staff to alert the authorities.

 

A search and rescue team from the Kuson Songkroh foundation was dispatched to the waterfall, where they searched the path which visitors use to ascend the waterfall, but found no trace of the man.

He might not be dead . As long as they did not find his body , everything is possible .

The team later focused their search on the gaps between boulders along the water’s edge and eventually found the victim’s body trapped between two boulders and partially submerged.

Those waterfalls are really dangerous places, slippery and unpredictable, very easy to fall and get hurt.

I am not sure how many in total, but it seems like about 2 or 3 die each year at Na Muang 2... maybe need some better safety protection putting in place ?

Sadly, its just another tourist day in Thailand.

I don't know how you can stop people from doing dangerous activities in Asia.

Its their decision.

Sure this very low season and draconian laws has saved countless lives this year but unfortunately not on this occasion 🤔Rip

why? this is a natural place, not one for tourists perking about everything (no experience, outfit not suitable, no safety shoes but rubber slippers, partially drunk etc.)
