A tourist from Uzbekistan has died after slipping from a cliff edge while taking a photograph in the southern province of Ranong. The man, named in a Nation Thailand report as Soipov Abdullokh, was visiting Ngao Waterfall National Park with 5 Russian tourists. Ngao Waterfall National Park is between Ranong and Chumpon in Southern Thailand.

The incident happened around 1.00pm yesterday. Rescue workers found the man’s body in a stream below where he fell. Witnesses say the Uzbek tourist was around 15 metres above ground level and trying to take a picture when he lost his footing and fell off the cliff edge. Signs in the area warn of a slippery surface.

The man’s body has been sent for an autopsy.

      Some 200,000 tourists were stranded here in Thailand when the borders were shut and have been here ever since.
