Aussie family narrowly avoids drowning in Phuket
A family of Australian tourists who ignored red warning flags narrowly escaped drowning at Karon Beach on Tuesday afternoon.
Chalong Police identified the victims as Mr Samir Mourad, 58, his daughter Zeinab, 16, and Mr Mourad’s wife, whose first name and age were not reported.
According to the report, Mr Mourad was sunbathing while his wife and daughter entered the heavy surf, despite the fact that red warning flags were clearly visible in the area.
Do you mean he almost died from sunbathing?
Don't call this fatal shore the sunburnt country for nothing, eh?

I must agree with 7 Bth in his post
Myself I live in a beach front community here n Usa and have no reason to even frequent this deathly tourist trap.
Thailand has to many other safe wonders of beauty to visit and enjoy without the gang bangers and crime.
