“Rough seas claimed another life this year. I urge everyone to avoid marine activities of any type, especially swimming and fishing, during these current weather conditions,” said Kata-Karon Chief Lifeguard Uten Singsom.
Mr Uten pointed out that even those not planning on entering the water, but coming in close contact with the ocean are at risk during this period of time.
“You may slip on the rocks or even be struck by a large wave and taken out to sea,” Mr Uten said. “We don’t want to see anymore lives lost in our waters. Please take the necessary steps to ensure your own safety.”
