Twenty three Indian tourists saved after boat sinks off North Pattaya
All aboard were saved as the boat developed a leak and quickly sank. Most of the Indian tourists had cuts and bruises sustained in the sinking and many were in shock The tourists were ferried to the area near the Dusit Hotel by two speedboats that took part in the rescue near the island of Koh Jun.
Authorities in Pattaya swiftly forbid small boats and speedboats from ferrying passengers to Koh Larn as high winds and heavy seas hit the area.
Commentary: Perhaps the time to ban small boats from ferrying passengers to Koh Larn in high winds and heavy sea’s is before a boat full of tourists sinks almost drowning everyone on-board. Just saying….
