Bangtao Beach is the site of the latest suspected drowning of a Chinese tourist.

Police Captain Krasorn Bunprasop of Thalang Police Station was notified by Thalang Hospital at 2.20pm that a Chinese tourist named as Mr Miu Zhioin, 63, had been deceased for no less than an hour.

According to police report, the man went swimming at about noon the same day, and some time later, tourists spotted his unconscious body floating in the water, and helped to bring the man ashore.

On the beach volunteers attempted to revive the man with CPR, but to no avail, as an ambulance finally arrived and transported the tourist to hospital.

Doctors were also unsuccessful at their Resuscitation effort, which spanned an hour.

No unusual marks were found on the man’s body, and based on all the available facts, police have concluded drowning as the cause of death.

Just last weekend, a 61-year-old Chinese tourist was reported to have drowned in a popular Phuket resort swimming pool.

Case closed so I guess there's no reason to ask why he drowned?

Wow... amazing police work!...and without CCTV footage no less! Man, and here I thought we might go a few days without a Chinese death...but I suppose that is a lot to expect.  Good job to BangTao lifeguards too!
