You could also ask why the story about a ban on rock climbing on Phi Phi is on the Phuket forum.

suspicious but a good post mortem exam may shed some light. 27 year olds do suffer panic attacks, heart attacks etc. No mention of drugs or drinking in the article. The article said the water was 1-2 m deep! Outside chance of a venomous bite from a jellyfish or something like that.
