PHUKET:-- Four people – three men and a woman – were safely rescued after their boat capsized about seven nautical miles off Phuket while on a fishing excursion today (Jan 12), marine police said.


Following the accident, a marine police rapid deployment unit set off on a rubber boat on a rescue mission, said Pol Lt Col Jeerayut Niyomdet, a Phuket marine police duty officer.


The police boat, accompanied by fishermen on two fishing boats, arrived at the spot where the boat capsized at 12:20pm and found the four people drifting in the sea. They were rescued safely and brought to the island at Nai Yang beach in tambon Sakhu, Thalang district, at 1pm.
