Fatal disregard: Kazakhstani tourist ignores purple flag warnings, drowns at Phuket’s Kata Beach

A Kazakhstani vacationer reportedly ignored purple flags warning against swimming and as a consequence tragically drowned at Kata Beach in Phuket. Karon Police were alerted by a lifeguard at Kata Beach yesterday afternoon and found the body of the vacationer, identified as 24 year outdated Artur Iskakov from Kazakhstan.
Lifeguards informed the police that they had been notified of the Kazakhstan tourist’s unconscious state approximately 5 minutes before their arrival. They used a jet-ski to pull Iskakov from the water and again onto the seashore, the place emergency responders had been known as. Unfortunately, Iskakov was pronounced lifeless on the scene.
At the time of the incident, there was a red flag on the seashore, which serves as a warning to vacationers to not swim as a outcome of robust waves and currents.
In Thailand, drowning incidents are not unusual.
On May 27, a Russian man tragically drowned off the coast of Patong Beach. The incident occurred throughout an early morning swim when 53 year old Pavel Rafaylovich and his spouse went into the ocean close to their lodge.
Rafaylovich swam roughly 7 kilometres from the shore and encountered strong waves, in the end struggling to remain afloat. His spouse referred to as for help, and lifeguards rushed to convey him again to shore. Despite the mixed efforts of rescue workers, lifeguards, and Patong Hospital personnel, Rafaylovich couldn’t be resuscitated and was pronounced dead on the scene. His spouse confirmed they had been each Russian nationals vacationing in the space.
