PHUKET:-- A Thai tourist nearly drowned on Wednesday after he ignored red flag warnings and went swimming at Kata Beach. 

About 4pm, 27-year-old Athithan Kanjanawattanakun reportedly disappeared into the water. Lifeguards and Royal Thai Navy search and rescue personnel managed to recover him while he was still conscious.

Mr Athithan received first aid at the scene and was then sent to Patong Hospital for further treatment.

He is probably color blind. Couldn't tell the difference between red and green.

Just following the example set by the government by ignoring any red flag warnings. They are not real warnings they just dont understand that Thailand is different.

In Chanthaburi's beaches, many locals come to swim in the week end, including a lot of children, most of days with RED FLAGS, there have been some drowned.  I doubt they really know the meaning of the flags.

I agree, like the traffic rules, for example. But in this case they unaware of dangers of marine undercurrents.

Likely more because red flags are only in English and the green is always Thai.
