At 10.30 am this morning (Tuesday) two Egyptian tourists (husband and wife) were rescued from surf by lifeguards at Naiharn Beach. The male tourist, who was aged over 60 years old, claimed he felt very weak and was taken to the Chalong Hospital for observation. Conditions were very poor for swimming this morning along the west coast of Phuket with the forecast for strong westerly winds, thunder storms and passing rain fronts.
