The three unnamed female tourists got in trouble in the waves at about 8pm yesterday (Sept 23), the Patong Surf Life Saving Club reported in a Facebook post.

According to the publication, the women were not aware that it is strongly not recommended to swim after dark when there are no lifeguards on duty on the beach.

The women’s calls for help were heard by a group of parasailing operators who were still sitting on the beach having their leisure time opposite Banana Walk.

The operators used their jet skies to reach the women in trouble and safely take them back to the beach. 

The names and nationalities of the rescued were not revealed.

Nice reaction of the Operators. Good work. As Bangla area presumenly will go legally open till 4 am, and in reality later, is seems justifying to have 24/7 Patong beach/life guards on duty, taking care of people drinking many hours and afterthat going to Patong beach. Be prepared!
