Canadian tourist dies in tragic snorkelling accident Koh Tao

 

KOH TAO: -- A 50 year old Canadian tourist has died after a tragic snorkelling accident on the island of Koh Tao. The accident occurred on the afternoon of the 16th of February when the lady was snorkelling in a marked boat lane used by longtail boats to access the beach.

 

None of the 8 people on board the boat saw the lady before she was hit by the boat on a choppy sea.

 

After the impact the boat driver stopped and together with the passengers brought her on board and tried to help her. The local Koh Tao rescue teams were called and took her to the medical clinic on the island. She was later transferred to a hospital on Koh Samui where she sadly died later that night.

Looks like reading comprehension is not your strong point.

I fail to see any joke in my brief comment.

In a boat lane, not a good idea!

 

This happens in Jomtien also. Swimming areas clearly marked but people still swim where there's boat traffic.

 

Why?

As I am a snorkeller I would be interested in knowing where to pay particular attention (more than I usually do already, always carry a safety buoy).

RIP lady. These accidents always make me wonder about my mortality. Have I led a charmed life up to this point? Well we have experienced today sadly this poor lady will not.
