Lifeguards at Patong Beach rescued a 77 year old Swedish male tourist from drowning after he lost consciousness whilst in the water.

Lifeguards pulled the Swedish tourist, Berlin Goran, out of the water after he passed out whilst swimming at the beach.

Head of Patong lifeguard Somprasong Sangchart says, “We saw other swimmers wave their hands and call for help after they saw Mr Goran fainting face down into the water. We rushed in to retrieve him, he was about 40 metres off shore.

“Mr Goran was unconscious and his pulses was very weak. Lifeguards provided CPR and recovered Mr Goran’s pulse and conciousness. He was rushed to Patong Hospital.”

Doctor says that Mr Goran was very lucky that he was rescued immediately. They say if there was a longer delay he would probably have died.
