PHUKET: Rescue workers and Marine Police this afternoon are searching for a young man seen parking his motorbike on the Thao Sri Soonthorn Bridge onto the island from Phang Nga and leaping over the side into the water below.

 

Passing motorists called the Khok Kloi Police Station, on the Phang Nga side of the bridge, to inform officers of the incident at 12:20pm today (Aug 1), reported Pol Col Prasert Srikhunrat, Chief of Marine Police Division 8.

 

The witnesses reported that the man, aged 20 to 30 years, had parked his Honda MSX motorcycle, registered Phang Nga, in the emergency lane. He removed his shoes, then jumped over the side.

Sarasin bridges, 3 now, known as lovers leap bridges. Many a person/couple have jumped off them .... not too far to the water but an inability to swim has been their downfall. Hopefully he made it to land otherwise RIP young man.

I somehow don't think his intention was to get to the land on the other side. unless you mean the "other" other side.

R.I.P fella.
