Panupan Jindaphon, Village Headman (Phu Yai Baan) of Moo 5, Mai Khao, was informed of the incident at 4pm.

The woman was scrambling to stay afloat when she was lifted out of the water and safely brought ashore, Mr Panupan said.

Medical teams from the Mai Khao Tambon Administrative Organisation (OrBorTor) and the Phuket Kusoldharm Foundation soon arrived at the scene.

Paramedics administered first aid before taking the woman to Thalang Hospital for a physical examination.

The woman had suffered only minor injuries from her impact on the water, Mr Panupan said.

Police have been informed of the incident, he added.
