4 Chinese tourists who defied swimming warning were plucked from the sea by life guards

4 Chinese tourists who defied swimming warning were plucked from the sea by life guards

 

Life guards on Monday helped pull four Chinese tourists from the sea off Phuket’s Pa Tong beach after they defied warning not to swim in dangerous area.

A life guard attached to Pa Tong beach said the four Chinese male tourists defied a warning by officials to swim in the sea where a red flag was planted on the sand because of the big waves, choppy sea and strong winds.

He said the four Chinese went into the sea and shortly afterward they washed away from the beach deeper into the sea and were about to drown, prompting life guards on the beach to immediately launch a rescue operation.

A speed boat was launched into the sea with some of the life guards who managed to pull the four Chinese one-by-one from the sea onto the boat. They were all safe after given first aid on the beach and later all were sent to hospital nearby.
