Phuket doctors unable to save girl found at Nai Harn Beach

PHUKET: Doctors were unable to save the 12-year-old girl pulled unconscious from the bottom of the sea yesterday afternoon at Nai Harn Beach.

“The Varissara Thongkham was pronounced dead at about 4pm,” a Vachira Phuket Emergency Medical Service officer told the Phuket Gazette this morning.

She was in critical condition when she arrived at the hospital at about 3pm (story here).

“We did our best to save her, but it was too late,” the officer said.

Nong Varissara’s family are now preparing funeral arrangements, said Vachira Phuket Hospital mortuary officer Prapan Sriharun.
