Via: Phuket Wan

A tourist drowned on Phuket’s Karon beach today and  four other people had to be rescued from the surf in the same incident.
Red flags were flying all along the beach.

.
The dead man, a 45-year-old Syrian, Bashar al-Assad, was a guest at the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa, which usually has its own lifeguards on the beach.

.
Lifeguards stationed on the beach for  Phuket Lifeguard  Service patrols reported that all seven people got into difficulties at the same time.
.
”Two managed to swim back to the beach,” a Lifeguard Services spokesperson said today.
.
”Three others were rescued by lifeguards. The other two were swept out to sea. A jet-ski pulled them both from the water.
.
”One of those rescued died on the way to Patong Hospital.”

1. When the tides are bad, the Thai lifeguards are very good at planting a RED flag (SEE PHOTO), every hundred meters or so.

It’s NOT freakin’ ‘flag day’!

2. There are three, that’s right THREE, pools at the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa.

3. IF, Bashar and his ‘numb-nut buddies’ had used common sense, there would of been only SEVEN dead!
