Fundraiser for Phuket yachtsman Boo Meesuk

PHUKET: The Ao Chalong Yacht Club (ACYC) in Phuket will host a fundraising event on Friday for local yacht enthusiast Boo Meesuk.

About two and a half weeks ago, Boo fell seriously ill while delivering a yacht to Phuket. His condition was critical by the time the rest of the crew managed to get him to a hospital in Terengganu, Malaysia.

He is now in a coma in ICU. He had been recovering from tuberculosis and recently caught pneumonia.

A fundraiser has been organized through the ACYC to help with medical costs and ensure a family member can be with him in Malaysia as he recovers.
