Divers took more than 20 minutes to recover the body of the man, named by police as Zin Kyaw Kyaw Lat Jaw Lar, 32, who they reported was “a migrant worker”.

Mr Yaw’s body was pinned under the motorbike at a depth of four metres in the canal.

The woman who was on the motorbike. Ms Thin Thin Maw, 37, remains in intensive care at Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town.

“People in the area found her floating in the canal under the bridge and pulled her ashore,” said Lt Jaran Lempan of the Wichit Police.

“We will do so as soon as she is fit to answer questions,” Lt Jaran said.
