An elderly Chinese tourist drowned off Pattaya beach in front of the Twin Palms Resort in Central Pattaya on Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Zhu Fuhe, 68, had reportedly gone to the beach with a group of Chinese friends who became worried after Mr. Zhu failed to return to the beach after he had gone for a swim on his own. They eventually spotted his body floating face-down in the sea.
Although his body was swiftly pulled back to the beach and CPR was administered he was found to be already dead upon arrival at hospital. Pattaya One note that an autopsy will be performed on the body to “determine the exact cause of the drowning.”
