Danish tourist dies at waterfall

THALANG: Mrs Dorthe Malakiassen, a 41-year-old Danish tourist, died at the Ton Sai waterfall on Friday. Pol Capt Surat Muagsri of Phuket Town Police Station told the Gazette that the victim, a guest at the Thara Patong Hotel, went to the waterfall in Thalang with her husband and two friends around 2:30 pm. “After arriving, they went swimming and were jumping into the water. Apparently, the victim fell into the water when nobody was looking. When her husband and friends noticed that she had disappeared, they looked around and found her submerged in the water,” said Capt Surat. After being rushed to Thalang Hospital, Mrs Malakiassen was transferred to Wachira Hospital in Phuket Town. She died in the hospital’s ICU. An autopsy determined that she had died of a brain hemorrhage. “It is possible that she lost consciousness and then fell into the water,” Capt Surat surmised.
