Rescue workers and police were called to the popular waterfall after 3pm after friends raised the alarm that they were unable to recover their friend Abdul Aziz, 25, from Pattani, who worked for a local security company.

Mr Abdul’s three friends told police that Mr Abdul had jumped into the pool of water at the base of the waterfall, which they knew had rocks underwater.

Alarmed that Mr Abdul did not resurface, they searched for him but were unable to find him with the water in the rock pool, which is about four to five metres deep, swirling strongly.

Rescue workers managed to recover Mr Abdul’s body from the water after about 15 minutes after arriving, but he was already unconscious and unresponsive, and later pronounced dead.

Mr Abdul’s body was taken to Thalang Hospital for further examination, said police, before they could conclude their investigation.
