A teenager has drowned while fishing with a friend at a pond in a Krabi national park.

The Haad Nopparat Thara-Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park rangers recovered the body of Jessada Ngafah, a 16 year old male, at 2.30am this morning.

Rangers were working at an office near the Khao Ngon Nak viewpoint when they were informed that Jessada had disappeared in the pond nearby. They found his shoulder bag containing a phone and his sandals at the edge of the pond.

Twenty minutes later the boy’s body was seen floating face down about five metres from the bank.

His friend, 21 year old Ekkapol Sangkhanarod, cold the rangers that Jessada has asked him to go fishing the evening before and they were doing so at separate spots for 10 minutes when Ekkapol noticed he’d vanished.

Ekkapol first returned home to alert Jessada’s family, who then sought help from park rangers.
