PHUKET:-- After 10 days lying comatose in intensive care, the Chinese woman who was pulled unconscious from the water during a snorkelling tour in Phang Nga Bay on Oct 1 has died at Krabi Hospital, local officials have confirmed.

 

Lai Xiaochang, 22, was rushed to Krabi Hospital after friends found her unconscious in the water while snorkelling at the popular tourist day-trip destination Koh Gai (Chicken Island), near Poda Island. She was with a tour group from Nang-ann tour.

 

Seemingly saved from drowning, Ms Lai was alive and seemed to be partially aware but remained unresponsive in the intensive-care unit (ICU). Doctors believed she had suffered at least partial brain damage.

 

“The hospital notified us yesterday (Oct 10) that the victim had died in the ICU at 6pm,” Lt Col Attapong Sankraiwuth of the Krabi Tourist Police told The Phuket News today (Oct 11).
