Phuket spa staffer found dead after leap from pier

PHUKET: Police have yet to discover why Sriwan Saraphu, a 49-year-old staffer at a Phuket spa, jumped off Rawai Pier into storm seas with waves surging up to two metres tall this morning (August 5). Her body was found two hours later.

Local residents raised the alarm after watching as Ms Sriwan took a motorbike taxi to the pier, walked to the end and jumped off at about 8:30am.

Fishermen in a longtail boat and a speedboat were dispatched to search for her, and found her body two hours later around the small cape to the east of the pier, at Laem Ka Yai.

Officers from Rawai Municipality, along with Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos were soon at the scene, as were first-responders from Khaimook Rescue, who transported her body to Vachira Hospital in Phuket Town.

Far too many suicides. There should be a Hot Line that people, who feel hopeless and desperate, can call. 
Social workers, trained to help, may be able to save the next and the next and the next. You should try it. Better than picking up another splattered or drowned body and they may go on to do great things. So upset whenever I read about another who may have been saved.
