A Russian man was pronounced dead at the Patong Hospital in Phuket after reportedly going swimming in a red flagged area of the beach before being swept away by strong currents.
The man named as Parshukov Ole, 42, from Russia, drowned at Karon Beach on Sunday afternoon in an area of beach signposted as to dangerous to swim due to large waves and rip currents.
Rescue teams dragged the man’s body from the waters which at the time had waves estimated to be two metres high, attempts were made to resuscitate the man as he was not breathing and CPR was continued while on route to the hospital.
The tragic death comes after several reports over the weekend of tourists having to be saved from areas clearly marked as no swimming areas.
