The words were echoed by netizens who want more spending on preventing deaths of visitors to the holiday island.

Some money would be a good start.

I’m thinking more to get them a good name and stop people moaning about them on that beach . Make a change from jet ski scams , threatening behaviour , almost hitting swimmers and shooting each other !!

Shut the beaches and the mountains and the elephant sanctuaries. Oh, why not stop tourism all together? That'll stop them dying in Thailand.

The authorities are expected to do what exactly, to stop the number of tourists dying? Especially when we heard today of a British guy visiting his father who seems to have to have taken his own life.

Everyone takes risks, warning signs abound. All adventure is risky. You assess the risk, then decide whether the risk is acceptable or not. It's an adventure crossing the roads here, being driven in a mini van here. Being a tourist here...

Would it be possible that the boy is living in a city 10 km away?

My dear TV expert, look at the map first (if you can find Koh Samui on it). My point is the whole article is aimed at tourists (read it again) who don't "follow local advice" while the kid is most likely Samui local (plenty of them hang out at beaches in the afternoon). Write an article about Thai kids having no idea about swimming and riptides and attach this video - this will be spot on

Most local Samui kids can swim, including my son, they live by the sea. 

Unfortunately lot of kids are not local but mainlanders and they can't swim. 

Agree most Thai kids have no clue about swimming but they are not born on Samui.

I am so sick of people refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Why is it Thailand's fault that people drown? What nonsense. People ignore red flags, roped safe swimming areas, etc. Sad that they die, but stupidity should be painful to the stupid, too.

Exactly. It is happening everywhere. You cannot legislate to be rid of stupidity. Natural Selection at work.

 

Kudos to the jet ski rider however.
