Bangtao Beach is the site of the latest suspected drowning of a Chinese tourist.

PHUKET: Police suspect that the 63-year-old Chinese man whose lifeless body was recovered from Bangtao Beach yesterday had most likely drowned.

Police Captain Krasorn Bunprasop of Thalang Police Station was notified by Thalang Hospital at 2.20pm that a Chinese tourist named as Mr Miu Zhioin, 63, had been deceased for no less than an hour.

According to police report, the man went swimming at about noon the same day, and some time later, tourists spotted his unconscious body floating in the water, and helped to bring the man ashore.

On the beach volunteers attempted to revive the man with CPR, but to no avail, as an ambulance finally arrived and transported the tourist to hospital.

Another Chinese pushing up daisies. Perhaps a previous medical problem. Who knows.

If you don't know how to swim, don't go in the water. If you know how to swim but have never swam in the sea/ocean, don't go in. You might die.
