An Indian tourist has been rescued from drowning after getting into difficulty while swimming at Patong beach yesterday.

Patong Surf Life Saving report that around 1.30pm at Patong Beach an Indian tourist was spotted in the water, choking and fighting to stay afloat.

Lifeguards dived in and brought him back to the beach. He was not breathing and his heart has stopped beating by the time they got him back to shore. Lifeguards urgently applied CPR.

Mr Jhamnani’s heart started to beat again and he became conscious. He was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital where he is now recovering.

Well done to the team at Patong Surf Lifesaving. I think you can expect a visit from a grateful Indian tourist in a few days.
