PHUKET: -- The body of a man believed to be that of a Korean tourist who went missing after entering the sea to save his girlfriend at Patong beach last Wednesday was found by fishermen off the northwest coast of Phuket yesterday.

Korean nationals Siwoo Park, 25, and his partner Garam Hong, 28, disappeared in the surf off Patong Beach around 1am on June 29. (story here)

The body of Ms Hong washed up a few hours later. However, search and rescue teams were unable to locate Mr Park.

Sorry he died. But I hope someone tells his family what he tried to do, trying to save the girl.

Hero, in my books.

Are you suggesting lifeguards should be on duty at beaches at 0100 am to prevent drunken tourists going swimming?

I don't think life guards on duty 24/7 is reasonable, but, would it really hurt to have some police / security patrol Patong Beach from dusk to dawn?

They could act as security for what happens on the sand, and keep an eye on those entering the water in the early hours of the morning.

Yes, I know, TIT, but Phuket promotes itself as a "world class tourist destination" and how many incidents have happened on Patong Beach after dark????
