A 72-year-old Chinese tourist on a group holiday with her elderly husband drowned in the sea off Jomtien beach at around 10 a.m. on Sunday.
The fatal incident happened opposite Jomtien Soi 5 and was reportedly ânot the first in the areaâ in recent time.
According to Pattaya One News, a tour guide told police
he had seen the elderly couple enjoying themselves in the sea as normal. After no more than three minutes, he saw the husband emerge from the water, but no sign of the wife. He rushed into the sea to find the wife underwater.
He dragged the body to the sand and called for help. Emergency CPR was given at the scene but it was too late.
