“Patong Police Station was informed of this incident by the Patong Radio Centre, so we came to check and found the injured man lying on the ground. His parachute was stuck in the trees and tangled with some power cables,” Col Tassanai said.

“The Chilean tourist brought his own kiteboarding equipment to the beach. Witnesses told police that he was unable to control the parachute due to the rain and strong winds and it dragged him to the ground,” he added.
