Unidentified body found off Phuket beach

PHUKET: Lifeguards stationed at the Karon Rescue Center, on Phuket’s west coast, recovered an unidentified body near Yanui Beach this afternoon.

“The body was discovered a few kilometers offshore,” Kata-Karon chief lifeguard Uten Singsom told the Phuket Gazette.

The remains had deteriorated extensively due to exposure in the sea, Mr Uten explained.

“From the remains, our lifeguards believe it was the body of a man,” he said.

“The Karon Police have been notified and are investigating.”

The body was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital.
