Seven Foreign Tourists in Phuket Rescued From Boat Battling With Waves

Phuket –

The Royal Thai Navy rescued seven foreign tourists and a captain from a boat after battling with waves in Phuket.

The Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command told the Phuket Express that yesterday, (January 25th), they were notified that a fishing boat carrying seven foreign tourists in the south of Phuket was battling with strong waves in the sea. The navigator on the boat was broken which meant that the boat captain was unable to take them back to the shore.

The Navy went out to the location where they finally found the fishing boat. They and the boat arrived safely at Chalong Pier.
