Cherng Talay Police were called to the north end of the beach at 7am. Officers arrived with Kusoldharm rescue workers to find the body of the man face down on the sand.

“The victim was about 50-60 years old,” explained Lt Peerasit Noopayan. “He was 180-185cm tall. He wore grey T-shirt, and long grey jeans. He was barefoot, and had a bandage on the top of his left foot.”

The grey T-shirt had the logo “LITE arrow” emblazoned on the left breast. The man also had grey hair cut very short.

“We found B90 in his pocket but no identification,” said Lt Peerasit. “There were no signs of assault or injury on the body. We think the victim died about six to eight hours before his body was discovered.

“His body was taken to Thalang Hospital for doctors to confirm the time and cause of death,” he added.

Two tourists jogging along the beach spotted the body floating face down in the water. “They pulled the body to shore and alerted a local resident to call the police,” said Lt Peerasit.

“We are not sure if the victim was an expat or a tourist. We theorise that he maybe fainted and collapsed while walking along the beach and that no-one saw him until this morning.

“We will check with hotels in the area as he may have been one of their guests” he said.

Rip foreigner.
A good advice for foreigners on Phuket:
Make a colour copy of your passport front page, + a copy of your visa.
Do attach it 'back to back' and plastify it. Carry it with you when you are alone.

You anyway are obligated to have a kind of ID on you.
