Thai Boat Captain Leaves Tourists Clinging to Rocks After Boat Capsizes...

The Phuket Gazette Reports that a boat captain abandoned four tourists in rough seas, leaving them clinging to rocks, after his overloaded longtail boat capsized near Wang Sai Seafood restaurant, en route to Ao Nang from Railay on Friday afternoon.

The boat was overloaded with nearly twice the vessel’s maximum capacity of eight people. Canadians, Polish and Spanish men and women were among the passengers on board when the boat capsized and sank after being struck by violent waves, said police.“ A passing boat picked up ten of the stranded tourists along with the longtail's captain, who fled once ashore.”
The remaining four passengers managed to hang on to rocks until another tour boat came to their rescue. They all survived the ordeal with scratches from being buffeted by the waves against the rocks.

The boatman, later surrendered to police, claiming that he was not at fault. He blamed three passengers for sitting at the bow of the boat, causing it to topple over .“I told them to move but they ignored me. After the boat capsized, I was shocked and confused so I ran away, but I’ve turned myself in now because I didn’t mean to cause any harm. It’s not my fault,” insisted the boatman.

Commentary: Once again it’s my opinion that all Thai tourist boats should be named “Titanic” as your maiden voyage could very well be your last!
