Chinese Tourist Drowns in Phuket..
The Phuket Gazette reports that lifeguards recovered the body of a 25-year-old Chinese tourist from the water at Karon Beach at around 12:30pm on Monday, according to the Phuket Lifeguard Chief.
The tourists girlfriend told lifeguards that he was not a good swimmer and that she had told him he should not go swimming as the red flags were flying but he ignored her advice.
Commentary: There’s a reason those red flags are on the beach when the surf is too dangerous to swim in! They mean go in the water and you die! Stupid, stupid people!
